Meet Liam Allen and Kamran Khan, who are volunteers at the brand new community café at Beaumont Lodge Neighbourhood Centre. The community café will soon be open to the public and will offer refreshments, freshly baked products as well as hot and cold menu items. The community café was funded by the Big Lottery - Awards for All, who helped Beaumont Lodge Neighbourhood CIC get all the equipment and training needed to run the café. Liam and Kamran continue to volunteer their time to try out and experiment with various products and offers for visitors and members of Beaumont Lodge Neighbourhood Centre. The Cooke e-Learning Foundation are supporting the community café through assistance with implementing processes and procedures, as well as supplying freshly baked products through their 'Strike Out' project which works with young people across the city who are marginalised from education.
The community café will soon be announcing their official opening once they have their food hygiene rating. Watch this space!
