WONSTON Community Café has raised £350 for Read Easy Winchester.

The monthly community café took place at the Victoria Hall, Sutton Scotney, selling tea, coffee and home made cakes for the cause. Alongside the money raised, Read Easy collected an additional £20 in its charity hat. Pat Stephens and other volunteers set up a display in the foyer explaining all about the charity, and spent some time talking to visitors.

The next Wonston Community Café will be held at the Victoria Hall on Wednesday, March 20. This month the café will be supporting local charity BOAZ, a therapeutic work environment. This charity allows adults with learning difficulties to learn new skills such as working on the land, looking after the animals, baking, making craft goods, and wood working in the workshop in its barn on Hill Farm, just outside of Winchester.

As well as the usual coffee and cakes offered by the cafe, eggs, jams, and other goods made at BOAZ will also be on sale.
