Free cake as Coffee Bar celebrates 2nd Birthday

Community Coffee Bar Volunteers

Community Coffee Bar Volunteers

Free cakes will be available to anyone buying a hot drink next Wednesday from the King’s Lynn Community Coffee Bar, which is celebrating 2 years since opening inside the Borough Council Offices.

The Community Coffee Bar is one of the key projects set up by WNVCA, an organisation that supports local community, charity and voluntary groups in West Norfolk.

The Coffee Bar is staffed by volunteers from some of the more vulnerable groups in the community, who wouldn’t normally be offered volunteering opportunities.

WNVCA worked closely with groups such as the Forward Day Centre and The Purfleet Trust, who help people with physical and learning difficulties or have experienced difficulties with housing and homelessness.

The Coffee Bar is non-profit making, with the simple aim of making enough money to cover its running costs, bringing back a service that was missed by staff and visitors.

Volunteers learn new skills such as cash handling and customer service, while improving their confidence to get future employment or move onto other volunteering opportunities.

The Coffee Bar has sold over 4,000 hot drinks and trained over 30 volunteers during its first year.

Quotes from volunteers:

“I look forward so much to my shift at the coffee bar”

“It really makes me happy to come to the coffee bar”

“It’s the best day of my week when I work in the coffee bar”

Quotes from our Customers:

“Its really great to see the service back again the Borough Council and the
volunteers do a wonderful job”.

“The coffee is delicious and I am very impressed with how quickly your volunteers have taken to the Project”
