SUPPORTING OUR MINISTRY
Our social enterprises were established to generate much-needed income for the charity, to support our ministry. They also enable us to offer some of the people we support a taste of work experience, but in a safe and caring environment.
BURSTING WITH LIGHT AND COLOUR
The Garden Nursery is the most recent addition to the social enterprises at Caring For Life. Generously funded by a Christian company, which also provides ongoing advice, the state-of-the-art glasshouse and adjacent polytunnels enable the production of bedding plants, house plants, shrubs and herbs for sale, as well as salad crops plus some fruit and vegetables for the Granary Restaurant.
This is a marvellous facility for beneficiaries to become involved in the production side of horticulture, and for some to gain experience helping in the retail area.
A COSY PLACE TO MEET
The previous Granary Café has been beautifully refurbished, thanks to kind corporate funding, and reopened as the Coffee Shop. It is the perfect place to meet up with friends for a coffee, or a pleasant, relaxing light lunch. The friendly atmosphere also attracts folks wanting to enjoy a coffee or lunch on their own, enjoying a bit of peace! The Coffee Shop can host a small event for up to 40 people during the day or occasional evening.
