Boys from Tendring based Lads Need Dads, an award-winning long-term mentoring programme for boys aged 11-15 with absent fathers or limited access to a positive male role model, enjoyed an evening of cooking in a professional kitchen and serving their mothers with a three-course meal prepared under the careful guidance of their mentors.

The ‘Come Dine with Me’ event is one of the highlights of a six month ‘Engage’ Programme – a practical life skill and community volunteering programme which teaches the boys a wide variety of practical life-skills, cooking being one of them.

Founder and Managing Director Sonia Shaljean said “We want to extend a huge thank you to Cadman Cranes for sponsoring this Come Dine With Me event, which the boys and mums get so much from. It is a really special and memorable evening for both mother and son, each feeling a real sense of pride”.
