A fam­ily-run cater­ing busi­ness in Peter­bor­ough has thanked its lo­cal com­mu­nity for years of sup­port with a pledge to ‘give some­thing back’.

Mum-and-son team, Linda and Joe Vine, who cre­ated Vine’s Cater­ing, in Mountsteven Av­enue three years ago, say they want to raise money for lo­cal causes.

They have vowed to stage a fund-rais­ing fam­ily fun day on the last Satur­day of each month.

The first one will take place on Satur­day at the Wal­ton Scouts Hut, in Mountsteven Av­enue, and the money raised will be do­nated to Wal­ton Ju­nior School to cre­ate a veg­etable patch.

Joe said: “My fam­ily busi­ness has re­lied upon and proudly pro­vided for the lo­cal com­mu­nity for more than three years now.

“We’ ve de­cided to start giv­ing some­thing back, which I am both very ex­cited and proud about.”

The growth of Vine’s Cater­ing is not only the re­sult of Linda and Joe’s hard work but also the sup­port of lo­cals from neigh­bours to large cor­po­ra­tions.

It be­gan life in Linda’ s kitchen pro­vid­ing food for neigh­bours’ chil­dren’s par­ties.

Now the busi­ness em­ploys three staff, pro­vides tasty spreads for cor­po­rate events and op­er­ates a mo­bile food van to com­pa­nies in Peter­bor­ough, from small firms to giants such as Ama­zon and Bri­tish Su­gar. The busi­ness also sup­plies clients in Cam­bridge and Gran­tham.

At­trac­tions at the fun day will in­clude chil­dren’ s cook­ing classes, fit­ness classes, ar­tand de­sign work­shops, re­fresh­ment and much more.
