Several Marketing Derby Bondholders have contributed recipes for a festive cookbook, which will raise money for specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound.

Firms including Cosy Direct, MiniAperture Photography, BB&J Commercial, HSBC and JJ Public Relations have all sponsored the digital cookbook and contributed their favourite recipes.

It is part of Safe and Sound’s Christmas appeal, which also includes the opportunity to sponsor a Hope Box, created by Colleague Box, which are given to children and young people nearing the end of their support programme with the charity.

Peter Ellse, chief executive of Cosy Direct, said: “The cookbook is a brilliant example of community enterprise and so characteristic of Safe and Sound’s solid approach in the community.

“Cookbooks can often be so predictable or over themed, but I am sure that this eclectic collection will become a seasonal highlight in our house.”

Tracy Harrison, chief executive of Safe and Sound, said: “We appreciate that individuals and companies are being asked to support a wide range of causes this Christmas so wanted to do something more light-hearted, while also helping us expand our work across the county.

“The digital cookbook will hopefully give some inspiration to those of us who are already planning festive menus for family and friends this year.

“On a more serious note, our workload has significantly increased again this year as more and more children and young people are referred to us for support having been victims of or at risk of child exploitation.

“We are also supporting a growing number of families affected by child exploitation to build their resilience to the situations they face.

“We never want to turn anyone away, so fundraising is an important way to ensure we have the resources and capacity to help anyone who has been targeted by groomers, whether online or in person, for the purposes of child sexual exploitation, County Lines, trafficking, radicalisation or modern slavery.”

The cookbook, which costs £7.50, is now available – please click here.
