Blackfriars Settlement’s Kitchen Takeover with CGI Easter Special – The Day

Polaris has been supporting Blackfriars Settlement’s Positive Ageing group since 2019 and on 6th April 2023, we returned to host a joint Easter Special kitchen takeover along with one of our technology partners, CGI.

Our team of volunteers worked hard to prepare and serve delicious food, and the members of the charity enjoyed a fantastic afternoon of entertainment.

6 Polaris members and 2 CGI members prepared and served up mains of cottage pie and salmon with mashed potato and mixed vegetables, followed by fruit salad, apple crumble and custard for dessert.

Steve Waller – Head of Standards – commented:

“The team got lots of positive feedback from the members, and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves”.

After the meal, Steve held a quiz with a mix of general knowledge and Easter-themed questions on entertainment, geography, food and drink, and more.

“I hosted the afternoon quiz entertainment which was a hit. Winners received boxes of chocolates which were warmly received. As always, it’s great to be back at Blackfriars giving back to a cause whose members appreciate our involvement”.

Our continued collaboration with Blackfriars aims to make a positive impact on the community, close to where we work, and support those who need it the most.

We look forward to returning to Blackfriars later in the year.
