So onto the important stuff....
Following the Yorkshire Evening Post article relating to the failures of Universal Credit we have been invited to visit London to present the petition - in early November. We will also be featured in The York Press next Monday (15 /10/18) and we have been approached by the National PR team of The Salvation Army to deliver some cooking demonstrations. Not bad for a couple of ex tent dwellers cooking on a budget of £4 a day for us and our dog Buster!
This is a “Not For Profit” venture on our behalf. We will never take anything for ourselves. Any donations however large or small are gratefully accepted and will only ever be used to supply materials for food presentations.  Any surplus will be donated to The Salvation Army or other chosen homeless related charities.
So thank you all. Please continue to share, like, download and enjoy our recipes! Sue & Tony
