Residents of Rush House in Rotherham were treated to a no-expense-spared Christmas Dinner thanks to the kindness and generosity of one of the Staverton team.
Dave Roberts, who operates the new CNC processing machine in our Rotherham factory, has become somewhat of a community hero in recent months, after donating surplus Sunday dinners to the local community for free and appearing in the local paper, the Rotherham Advertiser.
When news of his cooking prowess and generosity reached the directors, we decided to help Dave continue his charitable work.
With a donation of £250 from Staverton to buy ingredients, Dave decided to cook Christmas Dinner for the residents and staff at Rush House, a project which supports the homeless in Rotherham.
Dave cooked up a storm with roast turkey, pork and beef, all the Christmas trimmings and his signature sausage meat stuffing, as well as trifle and Christmas cake.
Dave Roberts said: “I’ve been blown away by how much attention this has received. All of this started because I really love cooking and didn’t want the surplus Sunday dinners I’d cooked to go to waste. It was fantastic to be able to do even more with the help of Staverton and their donation, and at Christmas too. It was a really special day and the food seemed to go down a storm.”
Carlo Delucchi, Marketing Manager at Staverton said: “We’d all heard about how generous Dave had been by donating Sunday dinners and knew he was keen to do more to help the community. We were only too happy to support him so that he could keep up his amazing work. To give up your Christmas Day to benefit others is something really quite special and we’re all very proud of him.”
