Chequers Kitchen Cookery School Supporters

Our Funders

As a Community Interest Company with a mission to support disadvantaged local people to access a healthy diet by learning to cook from scratch on a budget, we have had generous support from many large organisations, private supporters and local businesses.

Our crowd-funding campaign in spring 2014 had support from 70 generous donors and we list all those who didn’t ask for anonymity below. Please support those who which are businesses by clicking on the links to their websites.

We are very grateful for all the support we have had from private sponsors, businesses, trusts and foundations.

Chequers Healthy Hearts

Our Main Donor

A huge thank you to Mrs Fiona Sunley who so generously supported our mission. We are delighted to have dedicated our new bar area to the late, John Sunley, known to his friends as “Sunshine”. We now have the Sunshine Bar at Chequers Kitchen, a warm and sunny place to stop by for a hot or cold drink when walking, cycling, golfing or driving past the Chequers.

Thank you, Fiona, for your generous support which is helping us teach so many people to cook from scratch and opening up the health benefits and sheer pleasure of home cooking.

DMS Mediation

At DMS Mediation, I am a non-practising solicitor and an accredited civil and family mediator. I have worked in the legal industry for the past 21 years and believe that given the right assistance, it is possible for most people to sort out their own problems without resorting to Court. I am an approved provider of Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) for family mediation with extensive experience in helping people to sort out children, financial, property and all other issues arising out of relationship breakdown.   I also run Divorce Nicely specifically for separating spouses and will shortly be launching Work Nicely dealing with conflict and disputes in the workplace.
