The Brunswick Health and Wellbeing Café opens its doors again on Tuesday 1st November, between 11.30am and 1.30pm.

The Café is free but operates on a “pay as you feel” basis, so donations are always welcome.

Supported by S4B  and based at Brunswick Parish Church, it officially opened on Tuesday 17th May, to coincide with National Vegetarian Week (16-22 May).

To mark the occasion, a free vegetarian lunch was on offer as the church opened its doors for the residents of Brunswick to come along and sample the delicious food, provided by S4B Scheme Manager Donna Shaw.

The lunch was repeated on Thursday 19th May, when catering students from Manchester College came along to showcase their skills and cook for the visitors. A live cookery demonstration was performed by student Ayham Alsahley (pictured), when he cooked up a delicious stir-fry for the spectators to sample.

S4B resident, Craig Eastham, who is Chair of the Well-being Café and Well-being Group, said: “Our launch event was a great success. People could meet new faces and try some new dishes – a brilliant start to the Well-being Café project and a great way to celebrate vegetarian week.

“We are thrilled to be starting up again in November, just in time for the colder months, plus the Cafe does not only offer food – there are laptops available to use for free, with free WiFi, and people on hand to offer help and advice.

“So please come on in and join us, have some food, get warm, and find out what help we can offer”.

The Cafe is open on Tuesday 1st November and Thursday 3rd November between 11.30am and 1.30pm, then every Tuesday and Thursday thereafter.

The Well-being Group are also looking for volunteers, so if you think this is for you, please get in touch.
