Cash for Kids appeal with The Wave

Cash for Kids appeal with The Wave

Swansea Foyer and The WaveIn December the young people from our Swansea Foyer sent an email application to The Wave with the hope of securing funding from their Cash for Kids Appeal.

The money was needed to help them run regular cooking sessions working to a weekly budget and cooking for up to 20 people. In June, The Foyer was contacted by the Wave to confirm that we were successful in obtaining £1000 to put towards their venture. The residents will now take lead on running the cooking session every Wednesday night for current and ex-residents.

The cookery sessions are being help to help the young people at the project learn and improve on budgeting skills as well as learning how to make healthier, home cooked meals. The skills they develop from these sessions will help them to move on to independent living.
