Black History Month 2018

Louise O'Driscoll No Comments

Today is the first day of Black History Month. As an organisation we believe it is crucial that we recognise the importance of diversity and celebrate black history.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without the views and opinions of so many people from different backgrounds and with different talents and beliefs. We will always embrace differences and welcome positive change because it’s part of who we are. Quite simply, we’re here to help fulfil ambitions whatever they may be, for everyone. To celebrate this feeling, will be sharing quotes and information that inspire us on our social media streams throughout October!

If you’ve not heard of the challenge and want to find step to step instructions of how you can take part just click here. Don’t forget to tag us to let us know you’ve shared a recipe!

Here are some of our highlights so far…

Dippyeggplease wrote a brilliant blog post discussing cooking to keep to a budget during January. She cooked her kids favourite, ‘Beany cheesy pasta bake’ and was kind enough to share step by step cooking instructions and a photograph! You can read more by clicking this link

SadieBlueOT tweeted her lunch time budget recipe, we liked this one because it is cost efficient and easy to make! The total lunch costs just 2.75 and can make enough for 2-3 portions. Much better value than a meal deal.



We’ve also received some video based recipes through our Facebook page, If you’d like to find out how to cook a roast vegetable pasta for under £3 pp you can  click here to see more
