Crowd fund raising in Deal for a healthy diet ....

Can you help us change the eating habits of East Kent?!

When Chequers Kitchen Cookery School opens alongside the Restaurant in April there will be cookery courses for all tastes and skill levels. We are so looking forward to it!

But what you may not know is that we are now a community interest company and behind the scenes we are on a mission to help disadvantaged people in our community to access a healthy diet.

The profits from Chequers Kitchen Restaurant and Cookery School will be used to support free and subsidised cookery lessons for young parents, disadvantaged children, carers, people with mental health problems, young people in care and others who are severely disadvantaged in our community.

We need to raise a further £10,000 to build and equip the cookery school. And we are asking for help from our friends, customers and all who share our vision of helping people access a healthy diet through knowing how to cook from scratch, regardless of their circumstances.

Please have a look at our crowd-funding campaign and the 'Perks' on offer in exchange for your support.

If you would like to help us reach our goal we will be very grateful. If it's not for you, thank you anyway and please consider forwarding this message to any colleagues, friends, family or businesses who may share our passion and perhaps like to get involved.

Many thanks.

With best wishes from all at Chequers Kitchen including Pieter, Stephanie and Gary
What is Crowd-Funding?
Crowd-funding is a way to raise funds to support a project. It's as simple as that. We are using a platform called Indiegogo but there are many others around, some of which specialise in particular types of project.
We decided to run a crowd-funding campaign as an opportunity for our friends, customers and local businesses to get involved. We know there is lots of support for what we are doing at Chequers Kitchen and the crowd-funding approach lets us 'reward' our supporters in fun ways.
We have until March 17th to raise our funds. Have a look at the Perks and see what you think. You can suggest additional Perks if you like - we can have up to 20 at any one time!
Thank you for your interest and do get in touch if you have comments, questions, suggestions for us. We're on 01304 362288 or you can email us ay
