LOCAL businesses were in for a special lunch on Thursday as the team from The Prince’s Trust presented a Soup and Sweet at the Fishermen’s Mission.

The team of 11 made Leek and Tattie soup and Sticky Toffee Pudding from scratch using fresh ingredients as part of a team challenge.

Bryan McCann of The Prince’s Trust explained: “As part of week 10 and 11 of the project, they had to carry out a team challenge in which they had to work with the community.

“I had a chat with Steve from the Mission and mentioned we could prepare food for lunches and that one sentence took off!”

He added: “It has been good for the team to work with different members of the community and this is giving them the chance to find out more about the Mission and what it does.

“They have really taken ownership of the challenge.”

Administration officer for the Mission, Elspeth Armstrong, said: “The Soup and Sweet presented by the team from the Princes Trust raised the magnificent sum of £273.50.

“A huge thank you goes out to the team who worked extremely hard alongside canteen staff before the soup and sweet delivering all the orders, at the event and afterwards.

“The valuable income from voluntary contributions at events such as the soup and sweet are vital to the Mission and enables a wide range of services, such as accommodation and assistance to be provided to fishermen and their families.

“Everyone at the Fishermen’s Mission warmly thanks everyone in the local community for their wonderful support. A big thank you to all our customers who attended, we ran out of the best selling sticky toffee pudding!”

The Fishermen’s Mission will be holding a Daffodil Tea on Saturday, April 20 from 2pm to 4pm.

There will be tea, stalls, a tombola and raffle on the day.

Tickets are available from the Mission reception priced £2.50 for adults and £1 for children.

Donations for the raffle or tombola prizes are welcomed and can be handed in at the Mission.
