Women’s Refuge – Hastings – 5 Week Cookery Course

It means so much to me that I have Clare come and invest some time in “me”. Not only does she contribute to my wellbeing, every week I long for a Wednesday. Clare’s personality restores my faith in myself, her entire personal just allows me to feel “worth it again” …. I’d actually forgotten and neglected cooking for myself. I was bordering on a relapse with my lifetime eating disorder but knowing that I matter really counts. It matters a great deal to me.

When I landed in the women’s refuge, I could hardly stand, I cannot emphasise enough how important it was for me to have hope and a vision of one day being able to meet basic needs (without help), to use my own money to buy food that will enable me to sustain a future on my own, a brand new attitude and one that I deserve.

Thank you Clare.

I quite enjoy the cooking sessions on a Wednesday since the beginning because Clare is very supportive and helpful. The steps and procedures of cooking are illustrated very carefully, which enabled people to follow them easily.

I can’t appreciate Clare enough as it has helped me build my confidence up and it has helped my wellbeing, mental health.

Thank you Clare.
