Launch of Castle Donington Support Café

After three months of preparation and many Monday afternoons spent at the Hub talking to a people and raising our profile; the day of the launch, Monday 25th March, arrived.

Invitations has been sent out and social media used extensively to advertise the launch, therefore we were delighted that over sixty people came to wish us every success.

John Clarke, Chair of North West Leicestershire District Council said few words and declared Hospice Hope’s fourth Support Café “open”.  Eddie Russell of Castle Donington Rotary, said on behalf of its members, how pleased they were to have been able to support the group. 

We were also delighted to welcome Bev Smith, CEO of North West Leicestershire District Council, Andy Hayes, from Leicestershire County Council’s SHIRE Grants Scheme and Phil Megson of Quiet Storm, whose company has designed our new Café leaflets.

The assistance of Barbara, who runs the Hub Café and Fiona, the Parish Clerk has been invaluable in getting us this far.

We are all looking forward to being open to guests officially on Monday 1st April from 1.30pm, with our new Castle Donington volunteers, Margaret, Linda and Sue, who will be supported by Hospice Hope Trustees.
