Due to the success of the day we are donating to ‘Yes Chef!’ Which is a programme which sees six young men supported by Action for Children‘s ‘Moving On’ service learn to cook from scratch before preparing a meal for hundreds of guests at a top hotel in Glasgow. These young men, who spent time in prison at an early age, are being supported by the charity to transform their lives, learn new skills and hopefully gain employment.

Thank you!!!
