SNAPSHOT: Cheap eats Betsy Bell

Cheap eats Betsy Bell (seen here in the red scarf), the author of Hard Up and Hungry, a cook book for young people on restricted budgets, prepares a meal with unemployed people at the charity Amber. Based in Savernake Forest, Wiltshire, Amber helps young unemployed people, some homeless, to improve their lives in a residential setting away from the peer pressure of the street. "Although the residents were initially sceptical at the thought of cooking for 45 people, a superb lunch of peppers stuffed with meat was produced," said Sue Crawford-Condie, head of fundraising at Amber. The day convinced many residents to pursue cookery and their interest has since been stimulated further by the introduction of a weekly cookery session, led by volunteer Rachel Hall (bottom right).
