Shipley based Keycare has provided a welcome £500 boost to a vibrant community café, enabling them to buy some much needed kitchen equipment.
Outside the Box, run by Ilkley Community Enterprise Ltd, supports people within the local community who have learning disabilities, encouraging them to be more independent by participating in all aspects of running the café.
Louise Hale, a trustee from Outside the Box said: “We are so appreciative of the huge amount of support we have received from local firms. We operate as a business, but also rely on charitable giving.
“The Keycare donation came at exactly the right time and enabled us to fund the replacement of various kitchen equipment. “
Rachel Taylor, director at Keycare, said: “We admire the ethos of Outside the Box and were pleased to be able to help them in the work that they do. This kind of resource is vital within communities, not only for the support that it offers to its members, but for the impact that it has on the wider locality.”
Keycare – which recovers and replaces lost or stolen keys for customers of household names and blue chip organisations – has a long history of raising money for worthwhile causes. Past beneficiaries have included Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Martin House Hospice in Boston Spa.
