“Volunteering is at the very core of being a human. No one has made it through life without someone else’s help” Heather French Henry.

If you would like to become involved in a cafe with a real community feel then this might be for you! We are always interested in welcoming new volunteers. You don’t need to have experience in the catering and hospitality industry as we will train you to become part of a very friendly team. We are also very aware that a bit of support and encouragement is all you need to try something new.

We have opportunities in the kitchen and out in front serving and meeting customers. There are various hours to suit everyone including at the weekends. We can pay travelling costs if required and we provide regular opportunities for training and learning.

We are currently offering bakery and cookery workshops as shown here.
