Our local cause Cafe Solace had a few of us from Co-op along to see first-hand how their operation works. We rolled up our sleeves and tried to not get under the feet of Margaret Johnson and her lovely team of volunteers who do this every Friday night and made us feel very welcome.
As it's also #FairtradeFortnight we took along enough bananas and ice cream for chef Iain to make the banana splits for dessert. Vulnerable volunteers are integrated back into the community, whilst learning new skills for future employment. Local residents benefit by enjoying nutritious low cost meals in a social atmosphere.
