Blog: Fresh Start's Director writes about the cooker's appeal


by Keith Robertson, Managing Director at Fresh Start

We know there will be families and individuals who sit down to a cold Christmas dinner next week.

For families who have recently been re-housed after being homeless, a cooker is often too expensive to buy - but with your help we can ensure some of them don’t have to sit down to a cold meal again.

Through our Cookers for Christmas appeal, you can help us be able to distribute donated cookers to families in need.

This year, our new innovative cooker re-use service will mean we can help more people than in previous years. Historically the Cookers for Christmas donations were used to buy new cookers.

But our new Electrical Workshop at the Food Station means we can test donated cookers, which will then be passed onto clients, meaning we can increase the number of people we can help.

Help us make someone’s Christmas by donating through our Fresh Start Cookers for Christmas Just Giving Page - and also spread the word through social media using #cookersforchristmas

Thank you.
