PPM donates essential equipment to Cumbrian charity

We were over the moon to receive a lovely thank you from the Skills 4 You charity after donating a new cooker to their learning centre in Cleator Moor, Cumbria.

The cooker has been crucial for the food and nutrition training offered at the centre.  The training has given learners a new lease of life as they can now make better life choices and cook more healthy, balanced meals with the help from the amazing Skills 4 You support team.

The homemade bread, pasta sauce and apple & raisin muffins look really delicious! 

Home to Work Ltd, is a registered charity that provides support services for unemployed people living in the Copeland.  Skills 4 You was established to provide access to skills training for disadvantaged individuals in this local community.
