Kamal Abdullah proudly displays his NVQ Level 2 Certificates in Catering gained through his apprenticeship with Cherubs Kitchen 2015-2018! A refugee from Somalia, Kamal came to the UK aged 16 separated from his siblings after witnessing their parents being murdered in the civil war, he was put into child care until he was 18. After a decade on the streets fending for himself illiterate, innumerate and suffering from PTSD, falling in and out of drug and alcohol addiction, he was referred to our apostolate, Cherubs Kitchen for a work experience placement. After six months of coaching by Fr Jerome he passed the minimum requirements for literacy and numeracy to begin the NVQ Apprenticeship and at Easter 2018 completed the course. However, due to a break in his learning through illness, it took sometime for the assessor’s to calculate Kamal’s final result. However, his  certificates came through this month and we were delighted to discover he’d passed! Colin Reed (Barbara’s son) one of Cherubs volunteer chefs who had helped mentor Kamal, gave him his certificates.

Cherubs Kitchen an exciting new project is on the horizon for Cherubs in 2019 and a team of core volunteers are needed for a regular commitment from January to April to facilitate a new SWEP (Severe Weather Emergency Protocol) homeless night shelter to prepare and serve food on an ad hoc basis. IF you’re interested, please ring 07423 074517
