Over the last year we have been lucky enough to be the Clifton Lido's good cause; this has included a Bake Off, an overnight swim and a mountain of donated pots and pans that we have distributed to people who didn't have them at home. On top of this we have made some great connections, meeting people from around the city to tell them about the work we do. These new friendships have brought new volunteers, new partnerships and new opportunities; supporting our mission to teach people from all walks of life to cook good food from scratch.
A case in point, Lido member Camilla Kerr kindly nominated us for the Lloyds Bank Community Fund Prize, we were short-listed and are now in with a chance of winning up to £3000 to spend on new knives, pans, bowls and chopping boards for our bespoke teaching kitchen in Knowle. This is very good news indeed.
