The Sure Community Foundation has donated kitchen equipment to the Lihou Charitable Trust.

The foundation has bought £350 worth of pots, pans and crockery, as well as providing £750 to maintain one of the bedrooms.

Richard Curtis, warden of the Lihou Charitable Trust, said “the house is well used by so many school parties, groups and organisations that our current set of equipment has been very well used.”

“This generous donation from Sure is very gratefully received and will hopefully make people’s stay at Lihou House even more enjoyable.”

The room sponsorship will cover the cost of keeping The Bunnies, as it will be known, in good order.

The two-bed room is regularly used by visitors and has one of the best views on the island.

“It’s amazing how the cost of little odd jobs, such as cleaning, painting and replacing bedding can mount up.”

“Sponsorship is very important to the Lihou Charitable Trust and again we are thankful to Sure,” Richard Curtis said.

Karen Jagger, of the Sure Community Foundation, said the foundation’s aims were to benefit as wide a section of the community as possible.

“This donation would hopefully help make trips to the island even more enjoyable,” she said.

“Every year dozens of school children enjoy trips to Lihou Island, where they gain valuable experience away from the comfort of their own homes and learn about the history of the island.”

“We wanted to be able to enhance that experience by ensuring that they had the use of good quality equipment at meal times,” she said.

“Our sponsorship of the room means that it is one less thing for the Lihou Charitable Trust to have to fund.”

The Lihou Charitable Trust catered to 3,412 visitors in 2013, with 65% falling within the target market of school groups, clubs and local organisations.
