RKW’s Rob and Su Sutton have donated a range of kitchenware, storage items and an air fryer to a community champion for use at monthly breakfast clubs.
Sara Biddulph runs the community breakfast club at Endon Village Hall and is working to renovate the hall to encourage more people to use it. The equipment donated by RKW includes cutlery and crockery, kitchen storage items, an air fryer, kitchen utensils and accessories to help with cleaning.
The items will be used for food storage and preparation at the clubs, and will improve the facilities currently on offer.
Sara said: “I just love the village and just wanted to be part of a community. This last few years we’ve started to be more and more involved, and this last year, we managed to become involved with the village hall.”
Sara initially started helping out with a playgroup, when she saw the building was in need of some TLC, and decided to do something about it. She painted and decorated the facility with her husband, James and friends and family.
They now organise a free-of-charge monthly breakfast club, where all are welcome. Sara continued: “Anybody can come. There are some wonderful groups that use the hall but we need groups where every age group comes together. The young learn from the old – the older generation have got some fabulous stories.
“It’s the hub of the community, and we just want the community to have safe space and somewhere warm to come where they can meet other people.”
Sara was encouraged by a supporter to write a list of items that would help with the breakfast club and when Su and Rob Sutton heard about it, they were keen to help. The Suttons live locally and are keen to assist good causes in the area.
Sara said: “It’s amazing, I cannot thank them enough. It’s just absolutely amazing. It’s restored my faith that there are still wonderful human beings out there.”
