Success stories

Oakes Community Cafe

The Judith & Neil Charlesworth Fund supported the Oakes Community Café with a grant of £357.02. The cafe serves hot breakfasts and lunches every Friday, and is based at Oakes Baptist Church.

This small group urgently needed to purchase some additional catering equipment, due to the increased demand for their excellent food and facilities. They had become a huge success in the neighbourhood, and as a result, now needed to replace their borrowed and second-hand appliances. Learn more about our funding programmes.
