We were honoured to sponsor and host First Love Foundation’s Love Summer Celebration at CCT Venues-Docklands last week on Friday 13th September!
Since 2012, First Love Foundation has provided food support to families in Tower Hamlets who receive free school meals during term time. Throughout the summer holidays, families need to cater for an extra five meals per week per child, which often means having to stretch an already extremely tight budget. Love Summer aims to alleviate the financial strain on families who are affected by this extra expense. First Love Foundation meet with the families each Monday and Wednesday throughout the summer, running fun themed activities for the children and workshops for the parents tailored to their needs. They also provide them with groceries each week.
As part of this scheme, we provided a free conference and dinner for First Love Foundation and their service users and it was a great way to commemorate and celebrate the scheme. After some interesting presentations, all attendees made their way to our recently refurbished restaurant and enjoyed a hot buffet dinner (pictured above) prepared by our in-house award winning chefs.
It was our pleasure to support such a great and worthwhile cause and we look forward to continuing to work with and support First Love Foundation in the future.
Our CEO Caroline Bull commented: “The First Love Foundation are a wonderful organisation doing invaluable work to support the local community and we are delighted to continue our relationship with them.”
