Eat for the East Neuk First Responders

East Neuk First Responders

Update – money raised

We are delighted to say that we raised an amazing £1615 for The East Neuk Responders. Thank you so much to everyone who came along, donated and ate for this fantastic cause.

Public Access Defibrillator

This year we have been working with the East Neuk First Responders and are delighted to have raised enough money to install a public access defibrillator on our farm. It is accessible from both the Fife Coastal Path and the main road (A917) making it well positioned should anyone need to use it.

Making something good out of a tragedy

Sadly in May last year there was a tragedy on the path just beside our farm and despite the best efforts of our team, paramedics and first responders a gentleman died. It was this sad event that made us realise how important easy and quick access to a defibrillator is in situations like that. John Gormley was part of a walking group spending the day on our beautiful coastline and what should have been a leisurely day out changed everyone’s lives. As a result, in a combined effort, John’s widow, the walking group and our staff and customers have raised enough money for this new defibrillator. We are honoured to be guardians of this new defib and hope that if needed, it will help someone else.

Eat for the East Neuk First Responders

So we can raise awareness of this new defibrillator and to raise money for this amazing charity, we have decided to host a charity day called Eat for the East Neuk First Responders. Let’s face it there isn’t much else on in January! Supported by other local food and drink producers, this will be an all day BBQ in our courtyard. Our idea is that you pay what you can for your food and we will raise as much money as possible for this local charity. The East Neuk First Responders will be joining us for the day doing demonstrations, showing people how to use the defibrillator and showing people where it is located.

We didn’t realise how ignorant we were about using these amazing machines and how easy they are to use, if you can get to one in time. We’d highly recommend you coming to see how they work, even if you don’t want one of our burgers.

The Local Food Community

It’s at times like these that we are so incredibly grateful to be part of the amazing local food community in Fife. The Farmer’s Son are kindly donating haggis to the cause so we can have a Burn’s Burger on the day. Barnetts Bakery  are giving us freshly baked rolls for our burgers. Ovenstone 109 will be there pulling pints of their award winning beer (fingers crossed we get our license on time). Even our wonderful wholesaler The Cress Company have donated soft drinks to the cause.

Now all we need is you to come and buy some burgers.
