Rick Stein Sandbanks Supports Adults with Disabilities

Posted on: 27/03/2018

Rick Stein’s restaurant in Sandbanks recently raised over £2,200 for Dorset’s disability charity, Diverse Abilities, through the sale of lunches.

Guests to the seafood restaurant could choose to eat from the special charity three course lunch menu donating £2.50 per person, supporting the local cause while enjoying fabulous food.

The funds raised will be used towards the creation of a kitchen space at the charity’s adult centre, Barnabas. The new kitchen will develop the skills of the people supported in food preparation that they can use in their homes and provide foundation level training for adults on the AQA LifeSkills Awards Programme.

Vikki Slade, capital appeals manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “We are extremely grateful to Rick Stein’s restaurant in Sandbanks for donating funds from the sale of lunches for this incredible project. The adults supported at Barnabas really enjoy baking and preparing meals together so the new training kitchen will be an important part the centre. We also hope to use the space as a community café where the people we support can use the skills that they have learnt and help to fund additional activities from the sale of cakes, coffee and light lunches.”

Pete Murt, head chef at Rick Stein Sandbanks, said: “We’re really pleased to have supported such a fantastic charity like Diverse Abilities, thank you to everyone for attending our charity lunches and supporting such a well deserving charity.”
