Style Acre raises £10,000 at Truck Festival
We were delighted to be invited into the Feel Good Food Tent at truck Festival this year. Truck’s famous Feel Good Food Hall is entirely run by volunteers serving home cooked food over the festival weekend and raising money for local charities.
It was a successful weekend where, with the help of 32 volunteers we served over 2000 portions of chilli and nachos and raised £10,000 for the charity.
It was our first event serving food on this scale and we used our skills and expertise from running the Tea Room in Blewbury to plan and deliver. We involved people we support every step of the way, from cooking the chilli in our commercial kitchen in Didcot to cooking and serving people at the festival. People we support loved being involved, learning many new skills and for those at the event, experiencing their first ever festival. They loved every minute and enjoyed being part of the volunteer team.
Whilst the event was a huge success we learnt a lot and will be reviewing how we approach the event next year to make it even more successful. We will also be looking at how we can get more people we support involved, supporting the event and experiencing the festival.
