Ebbie Burns, owner of Frome based event caterers ‘Ebbie's Kitchen’, contacted Frome Rotary Clubs recently and offered to prepare hot meals at cost price for vulnerable students and children of key workers at Frome College.  Despite the COVID-19 lockdown a small number of students have been attending the College, albeit with the normal kitchens remaining firmly shut.

The 3 Frome Rotary Clubs took up the offer and set about fundraising, and local quarry operators, John Wainwright & Co, quickly came to the rescue and offered to meet all of Ebbie's costs! This allowed the initiative to go ahead immediately, and the first 30 hot meals were delivered by Rotary to the College on Monday 8 June to grateful students and staff.  This generous funding will allow the meal project to be repeated twice a week for the next 6 weeks until the Summer holidays. 

Malcolm Westgate, Youth Lead for Frome Selwood Rotary, said "On behalf of Frome College we would all like to say a huge thank you to Ebbie and her staff, and to John Wainwright & Co, for all their support to our young people during this difficult time - It is really appreciated by all concerned!"
