In the run-up to Christmas (between 13th and 24th December) we bring you a different charity that needs your help at this time of year, as part of our dedicated 12 Charities of Christmas campaign…
Lifegate Community Café
Lifegate Community Cafe was started in December 2014, based at Lifegate Church in Whitfield.
It’s open every Friday from 11am to 1pm and provides food and basic household items to anyone in need.
Since the beginning of lockdown they have fed over 11,000 people.
Pre-pandemic the cafe also offered a healthy hot meal, soup and toasties for free, along with access to benefit and housing advice.
The cafe is co-ordinated and run by volunteers.
