We’re very happy to update you on Philippe’s progress in his job at the Scafell Hotel in the Lake District. He has been promoted to Commis Chef, and says, “I don’t need anymore than this – it’s the dream life NOW!”
You can read his whole story here.
Jo and Andrew at the Scafell Hotel say that “Philippe is a hard worker, talented chef with a wonderful sense of humour who makes everyone laugh.” This won’t come as a surprise to our volunteers!
Jo and Andrew believe that hotels are a perfect answer to helping the homeless gain employment, as many provide accommodation,which one of the main missing links. They have also recruited Vit, who was one of our guests, as well as two other Booth Centre clients. You can read more from them here.
They have contacted the British Hospitality Association about what they’re doing, and the BHA are looking at rolling out a nationwide scheme later this year.
