Boost for Cafe Dome in Brighton Hill
CAFE society has received a boost in the Brighton Hill area of Basingstoke.
A new outdoor patio with table and parasols has been officially opened at Cafe Dome, funded by the De La Rue charitable trust.
The cafe, in Sullivan Road, provides training in hospitality and catering for young people with learning disabilities and is run by the Cafe Project.
Basingstoke MP Maria Miller, Secretary of State for culture, media and sport, officially opened the outdoor area.
As she did so, the cafe was packed with customers, staff volunteers, trustees and students.
Christine Fisher, chair of the Cafe Project, said: “I would like to thank the De La Rue charitable trust for the tremendous support they have given us. They have provided us with start-up funding, practical support and guidance and have now funded this lovely patio.”
The Cafe Project was set up in 2011 and runs Cafe Dome, which is open Tuesday to Friday, serving a wide range of home-cooked food and snacks along with real barista coffee.
It is run by a team of staff and volunteers, with students receiving training from staff at Basingstoke College of Technology.
Several spaces are available for students to start in October.
Any interested candidates should email Cafe Dome on or visit thecafeproject.co.uk.
