The Life Café at Creech St Michael Baptist Church continues to support their local community by providing a takeaway service and is delighted to be able to donate its profits to 3 local charities.
Tone News has spoken to manager, Lisa Knight:
We want continue supporting our local community during this pandemic by providing a warm and friendly service where people can pick up a good takeaway coffee and delicious cakes.
At this challenging time we want to share God’s love with everyone who comes along and, depending on Government policy, we are hoping to able to share something special with our communities at Christmas!
The nominated charities, National Brain Appeal, Love Musgrove, Refugee Aid from Taunton each received £700.
Ruishton school also received £700 towards a new spiritual garden and prayer labyrinth.
In February 2019 Neal Tarr, a regular visitor to the cafe, was told he had a brain tumor pressing on his optic nerve which would need removing or he would run the risk of going blind.
He had a successful operation in May 2019 at the National Hospital for Neurology Neuroscience, London and has since been raising money for the National Brain Appeal.
He recently ran the virtual London Marathon and is pictured in the photograph at the Life Café with his medal.
The Life Café is currently closed because of the national lockdown but hopes to safely reopen for takeaway as soon as it is allowed to.
