Supporters of Derbyshire’s specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound have donated their favourite recipes for a digital cookbook to help the organisation support more local young people and families.
The cookbook, which has been designed by Beeston-based digital marketing company Creationz, is now available online at https://www.safeandsoundgroup.org.uk/product/safe-sound-christmas-cookbook/ for £7.50.
It is part of Safe and Sound’s Christmas appeal which also includes the opportunity to sponsor a Hope Box, created by Colleague Box, which are given to children and young people nearing the end of their support programme with the charity.
Peter Ellse, CEO of Cosy said: “The cookbook is a brilliant example of community enterprise and so characteristic of Safe and Sound’s solid approach in the community.
“Cookbooks can often be so predictable or over themed but I am sure that this eclectic collection will become a seasonal highlight in our house.”
Safe and Sound CEO Tracy Harrison explained: “We appreciate that individuals and companies are being asked to support a wide range of causes this Christmas so wanted to do something more light hearted whilst also helping us expand our work across the county.
“The digital cook book will hopefully give some inspiration to those of us who are already planning festive menus for family and friends this year.
“On a more serious note, our workload has significantly increased again this year as more and more children and young people are referred to us for support having been victims of or at risk of child exploitation.
“We are also supporting a growing number of families affected by child exploitation to build their resilience to the situations they face.
“We never want to turn anyone away so fundraising is an important way to ensure we have the resources and capacity to help anyone who has been targeted by groomers whether online or in person for the purposes of child sexual exploitation, County Lines, trafficking, radicalisation or modern slavery.”
