Something Yummy – Charity Yummy Boxes

2 min read

One Island business is doing its charitable best to make this a Yummy Christmas.

Something Yummy was founded earlier this year by private chef, Paul Thorley. The business quickly built up a great reputation during Lockdown 1 for delivering exquisite dining to the front door.
The current lockdown sees the return of Something Yummy – and for charity. Paul has turned his talents to developing Christmas Yummy Boxes as a brilliant Christmas gift idea, with the proceeds going to Wessex Cancer Trust. Paul’s vision has been supported by a collection of Island businesses lending support to this venture.

Paul said: “We got such positive feedback to our meal ideas earlier this year so, when this latest lockdown was announced, we immediately started thinking about what we could do next to help. Given the current difficult situation, it will be great to bring people a festive treat.”

Each box serves an exquisite 3-course meal, including homemade bread and one of Paul’s popular Yummy treats. The meal comes ready to reheat, then simply serve on the plate for a beautiful dining experience. All instructions come via an easy to follow video.

Every box sold will raise at least £20 for Wessex Cancer Trust and the Something Yummy team have set a fundraising target of £5000.

Lorraine White, of Wessex Cancer Trust, said: “We’re so grateful to Paul and everyone involved for supporting Wessex Cancer Trust with these amazing Christmas Yummy boxes. Not only will they help spread some much-needed Christmas cheer but the money raised will also go a long way in helping us support Isle of Wight families affected by cancer, who may be feeling more vulnerable and isolated than ever at this tough time.”
