Caritas Anchor House (CAH) beat hundreds of projects nationwide to make the final 10 of the Stoves Community Kitchens campaign, which donates kitchen appliances to worthy causes to help them transform their kitchen facilities.

The homelessness charity, based in Barking Road, will be introducing a professional training kitchen at its premises as part of its Home and Hope Appeal.

Linda Maytum-Wilson, the charity’s acting chief executive, said: “CAH is committed to promoting healthy living, and our training kitchen will offer opportunities to improve knowledge and skills to choose and prepare healthy meals, as well as gain catering qualifications.

“Working with Stoves would help strengthen the community services we offer and we’re delighted to have been shortlisted.”

The public has until August 20 to award bronze, silver and gold prize packages - worth between £2,000 and £5,000 - to their favourite projects by voting here.
