Roupell joins QEST

Tim Roupell, founder of sandwich maker Daily Bread, has become a trustee of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST).

QEST is the charity of the Royal Warrant Holders Association and it provides workers in craft industries, such as chefing, with financial assistance o help them extend their expertise.

Roupell said: "I suggest that anyone who has a project they wish to pursue to boost their skills should look at the QEST website.

In 2004 a young Claridge's hotel chef, Adam Perison, won a £2,500 scholarship to gain experience and inspiration in the kitchens of some of New York's top hotels and restaurants.

Since 1991 the trust has made cash awards totalling more than £900,000 to 147 craftsmen and women aged 17 to 50 plus.
