#Charity Tuesday – News from the Cornwall Foundation of Promise
We are now entering week 4 of work experience and everybody is still going strong!
Apprentice Emily has really been enjoying her time at River Café in London – here is her account of her time so far:
“Fifteen has been an amazing year for me from start to finish. From working in a superb kitchen with fantastic produce to legendary chefs that made every day so enjoyable. Next was my placement to River Café, from Jamie Oliver to Ruth Rogers! Blimey! Literally never expected my first job out of Fifteen to be somewhere like this. I’m now into my second week living the dream and learning more and more every day. The River café is a whole new take on Italian cuisine compared to what I’ve learned during my year at Fifteen Cornwall. Everything here is totally rustic, nothing’s placed on a plate to make culinary art but as a matter of showing off each individual product. That means no swooshes’ of chocolate or anything in rings to make pretty shapes – it’s just as it is! I’m having the most amazing experience working and living in London, definitely don’t want to leave! Big thanks to all at Fifteen Cornwall for making it a reality, you’ve all been amazing”.
Our team have also been busy this week flying the charity flag at the Newquay Runway Runaround event. At the weekend our team of runners ran the 10k race in support of the Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Cornwall Foundation of Promise. Everyone had a great time and especially enjoyed the thoroughly deserved pasty and a pint at the end! Thank you so much to everyone who ran and particularly to everyone who supported us – we really appreciate your help. If you haven’t sponsored one of our runners already, don’t worry – there is still time!
