Kind Jake’s yard sale for hot meals service

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News, Uttoxeter news

UTTOXETER youngster Jake Seed has raised £100 to help provide meals for the elderly and vulnerable. Jake organised a yard sale from his home, selling toys and books to raise money.

He had hoped to raise £25 to support Old Saddler’s Yard Café, which has been delivering hot meals for older and vulnerable people – and free meals for those most in need – during the coronavirus lockdown.

Jake, 11, said: “I’m really chuffed to get to £100! My mum was talking about what the café have been doing and I wanted to help.”

The enterprising youngster also teamed up with younger sister Kayla, to make rainbow pictures for their neighbours in Westlands Road.

Jayne Thompson, proprietor at Old Saddler’s Yard Café has been working with colleague Helen Juggins to provide hot meals for people throughout the crisis. Jayne said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Jake. He is a superstar in our eyes. Most children of his age wouldn’t have considered donating the money when selling their own toys. We feel really honoured he picked us to help with providing meals for the elderly and vulnerable.

“Any donations we receive either go towards free meals, or containers, or just special treats to keep their spirits up. Jake has been so kind and thoughtful and is a credit to his parents. We look forward to meeting him so we can thank him personally and treat him to a massive ice cream sundae. We’d also like to thank the many people who have donated to help us offer this service during the pandemic.”
