Our Fairtrade Culinary Event
Culinary Away Day & Fairtrade

Our Culinary Away Day . . . Cooking Happiness . . . in aid of Fairtrade was ​a successful event, according to feedback we have received from guests. 

Thanks to Co-op for supporting this event with Fairtrade products which we used for the cooking workshop and refreshments.  It was a community even and the children were not left out, thanks to the wonderful facilities at Oatlands Community Centre.

We had a spontaneous raffle with some fabulous prizes including 2 York Race County Tickets worth £80. The proceeds went to our Social Inclusion Crowdfunder project. See the project here.

Check out how the event went by watching the video reel.

Thanks to the matchfunding support from Co-op, we were able to reach our initial Crowdfunder target early. We launched our Social Inclusion for Support Workers project on March 18, 2023 at Everyman Cinema Community Hub, Harrogate.

Climate Action ... Partnership with Ecologi

Ever heard of climate anxiety? It is a real thing. We asked ourselves "How do we become part of the change, as an organisation?"

We have partnered with Ecologi to ensure that our community is part of the change. So, every time you purchase a service or product from us, you'll be also be supporting our Climate Action by helping us plant trees, at no extra cost to you! 

How amazing is that?

So far, we have:

  • Planted a total of 200 trees in Mozambique, Kenya, Madagascar, Uganda and Ecuador. 

  • Supported the offset of 1.5 tonnes of carbon emission in Tanzania, Egypt, Brazil and the Amazon.

Visit our Ecologi profile to see what we are up to 😁.

We recently launched our deck of cards called "Explore by SVH". The deck of cards created by our Chief Executive, Valentina Hynes, is one of a kind, going by the feedback we've had about them. They are a handy toolkit to use as an icebreaker, a conversation starter, a learning prompter, a relaxing game or for team building. 

It's beauty is its multi-use, flexible play and no age limit features. One player described it this way on LinkedIn:


"Thanks Valentina Hynes, the deck of cards you developed is an amazing tool as an icebreaker, and to encourage in depth and meaningful conversations ☺"

Well worth getting, for unforgettable conversations, if we do say so ourselves! The cards are presently only available on our website.
