Harrogate’s homeless and vulnerable are benefiting from the food and support provided at Corrina and friends project in Mayfield Grove. The coffee and bakewell tart that I ate was as good or better than anything I could have got at Bettys and all the profits go to good causes.
The cafe is open between 10am – 5pm Monday to Saturday and ‘You pay what you feel’ for your drinks and food. Any donations and profit will contribute towards their ability to help the homeless and vulnerable. Payment into an envelope is discrete and any profit or surplus funds goes straight back into helping others. The volunteer staff are friendly and chatty and I recommend you give it a try and become a regular supporter.
As Corrina says ‘Local businesses, supermarkets, bakers and our generous community donate food for us to use. We have a good number of volunteer chefs that have the challenge of working out what we offer to our customer every day. Our aim is to make tasty meals and snack that you will enjoy.’
For the homeless
Every day the cafe opens it’s doors to the homeless and vulnerable. Between 5pm – 6pm doors open for a free meal for those who need it. On Sunday’s they open just for the homeless and vulnerable and offer a two course meal between 5pm – 7pm.
