Charity food cycle at Sainsbury's Devizes 13 October

Food cycle  - 9.30 - 14.30 hours   13 October 2018



Starting at 9.30 am 13 October Caenhill Countryside Centre Charity & Sainsbury’s Devizes Staff are doing a 50 miles bike ride on a static bike at the store in Devizes to help raise funds for the development of two separate farm kitchens and a crop area at the Caenhill Countryside Centre. The ride will cover 10 fictitious destinations all named from crops grown at the farm,starting from Carrot Corner go through Potato Patch, pass the Greens and finish at That's Shallot  Each 5 miles cycled will burn approximately 254 calories, about 25 small carrots. The bikes are supplied by Bikes n Boards Devizes.

The Centre run by volunteers supports young people with education and wellbeing six days a week.  Apart from looking after the animals the young people help grow crops. The two new seperate farm kitchen and crop areas will help the centre teach the young people of how to prepare the food for the animals and of course for themselves. Healthy eating is a big part of what the centre teaches.

Helie Franklin, project manager said we find many of our new students are unaware of where there food comes from and by creating a new dedicated area where they can grow and prepare food will be a great benefit.

At the event the Centre will be promoting their Back to Nature Calendar 2019 where volunteers have bared shoulders to make a fun fundraising calendar to also help raise funds for the new areas. Calendars are available at £8 each or two for £15 profits going to the farm kitchen.

Apart from buying a calendar people can help by making a donation to the food cycle team, donate time by volunteering to develop the new areas, donating building materials,  seeds, kitchen equipment, polytunnels and very keen to get hold of a root cutter, portable milking machine or any other old farm equipment to help with preparing animal feed.

Tiggi from Sainsbury’s Devizes said  we are very pleased to be able to support the Caenhill Countryside Centre who do so much to help young people in the Devizes area.
