Random Café has been based at the Leavesden Green Community Hub for three months since we were unable to use our regular venue at the Meriden Community Centre due to the pandemic.
In the initial few weeks, we were facing some uncertainty. We were not sure if we would be able to continue our mini market during the pandemic as our regular venue had closed indefinitely. This meant we had lost the majority of our weekly income and the cancellation of our fundraising events. The future looked bleak for Random Café.
Without the continued support and donations, Random Café would not still be here.
The Random Café team want to give a huge thank you to all the Friends of Random Café who have continued to donate to us throughout this challenging period. As a result of your membership fees, we have been able to save 42 tonnes of food and have helped feed over 2000 people since lock down. We have since been able to successfully apply for funding from various organisations to supplement your support.
However, we are in the process of finalising some very exciting plans and we need your help to continue with them. Becoming a friend of Random Café not only supports the work we do to reduce food waste and creating a community but allows you to receive a whole host of great benefits such as:
- Entry to our monthly prize draw
- Early bird notice for our events
- Discounted prices for our events
