As a long-established, large employer here in the South West, we at Westcountry Fruit Sales Ltd are very conscious of our potential to impact positively on the communities in Cornwall and Devon, from both an economic and social perspective. We are also convinced that prosperity on an economic and social level is dependent on individuals and groups of individuals believing that they can make a difference and that people can support each other in a meaningful way in our communities, by converting good ideas into reality. This is why we are so delighted to give our support.
We are a founding member of the Cornwall 100 Club – a group of like-minded businesses that believe in social responsibility at a grass roots level. We have come together to offer financial support to Cornish communities, making a real, positive and measurable difference to life in Cornwall. Since 2003, the Foundation has awarded more than £7.5 million to Cornish communities, support more than 2’500 locals, grass-roots organisations. We are delighted to continue to help Cornish communities with projects that make a real difference.
The project is about collecting grassroots information from employers in the hospitality sector and using it to create innovative training initiatives and programs to build skills, raise aspirations and increase recruitment across the sector. The Hospitality Table is a real opportunity to make a difference to hospitality in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, using ESF (European Social Funds) investment to change the face of training currently on offer. Kota Kai, an Asian fusion restaurant in Porthleven, hosted the ‘Hospitality Table Cornwall’ Launch where we pledged our support.
Senara is a training restaurant and kitchen at Penwith College. On Friday 30th June restaurants and suppliers in the hospitality industry teamed up to offer a one off dining experience to raise money for the Hospitality Action Charity. The Hospitality Action Charity offer crisis support to members of the Hospitality industry. The event was also a great opportunity for students at the college to gain experience working along side professional chefs.
