Kitchen supplier TKC – which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year – has revealed plans to donate three complete kitchens to charities or projects supporting mental health, loneliness or homelessness as part of the company’s new Caring Kitchen campaign.

The kitchens – which signify one per decade of business – will be donated throughout the year, with TKC reaching out to staff, trade customers, retail partners and the public to nominate charities or local community projects that might be in need of a new kitchen.

Nominations for the first kitchen donation are open until the 1st March 2019. TKC will promote the #CaringKitchen campaign on social media as well as through marketing activity. Alongside the campaign, the company will also be marking its anniversary with a fundraiser, staff volunteering project and “various 80s-themed events”.

“We all know how important the kitchen is as the heart of the home but it has undoubted importance in the work of community-based projects too, especially those that support vulnerable people, as a place for them to gather, socialise and feel they belong simply by providing drinks and hot meals,” said TKC CEO Roy Saunders.

“We are looking for projects being run at grassroots level by organisations or individuals who care about what is happening in their community and want to make a positive difference. Mental health, loneliness and homelessness are running at their highest levels and we are looking to support projects for whom a new kitchen will help them tackle these vital issues.”
