Inverurie charity calls for support for stained glass entrance transformation project
Fly Cup Catering is calling on the local community to support the transformation of its coffee shop entrance to raise funds for the organisation.
Fly Cup Catering provides adults (trainees) with learning disabilities access to training and employment opportunities in the hospitality and catering industry.
The entrance to Fly Cup’s coffee shop will be installed with stained glass which has been designed by local artist Roselyne O’Neill and the panels portrays cupcakes, tea cups, teapots, pathways and the spectacular Bennachie.
This is one of the organisation’s biggest fundraising projects and individuals and businesses are being urged to support it.
A side panel is priced at £250 per piece, with a top piece costing £100 and all supporters’ names will be engraved on a plaque and promoted on the organisation’s website and on social media.
Some of the supporters so far include parents of the trainees, members of the local community and a number of local businesses.
Chairperson at Fly Cup Catering, Fiona Allan said: “We invite the local community, both individuals and businesses, to get behind Fly Cup to see this stained glass entrance project come to fruition. We are excited to see the entrance be transformed with the unique design whilst raising vital funds to provide more opportunities for adults with learning disabilities.”
Trainees at Fly Cup are supported in a kitchen, bakery, coffee shop and office environment allowing them to learn a variety of skills and increase their confidence and self-esteem.
Each trainee is provided with a person-centred training programme specifically tailored to their individual needs and are set goals to achieve nationally recognised qualifications.
Flying Cup currently supports 37 trainees each week, delivering 71.5 placement days overall.
