As a Cornish business, Devoran Metals is always happy to help out a local charity. In July 2014 we were approached by Penryn based charity BF Adventure as they started the build for a brand new kitchen block in the middle of their beautiful 60 acre site. All materials for the build are being supplied by donation, and Devoran Metals were more than happy to donate all the reinforcing mesh for the ground works.
BF Adventure are a fantastic charity who help hundreds of disadvantaged and disabled children and adults across Cornwall every year.
The kitchen block is being built to celebrate their 25 anniversary and will provide its members with the opportunity to learn important life skills that we all take for granted. Adrian, the CEO of BF Adventures, says:
“As part of our many focused programmes which support disadvantaged and disabled young people and adults we focus upon life skills starting with the basics of looking after ones-self, making a hot drink, washing up, washing clothes and preparing a meal.
We have taken this one step further developing a highly effective programme which supports entrepreneurial skills in the Kitchen, Young people plan a menu, take orders from the team, write a shopping list, manage their budget in the local ASDA supermarket, prepare, cook and serve the meal and even collect the bill reconciling monies taken and donating profit back into the BF charity tin which further supports the work we do – a real win win for everyone especially those of us enjoying a delicious home cooked lunch on site!”

We wish BF Adventures every success with the build and am sure that the new kitchen will be a brilliant and inspiring asset for the charity and all its members!!
