Would you like to get involved in the first pay-what-you-feel cafe in South London, run by the Brixton Pound? We’re looking for volunteers to help out on weekday afternoons or weekends – be part of a unique local community project!
- The B£ Cafe was set up in July 2016 at 77 Atlantic Road. From the start, it was operating on a pay-what-you-feel basis: meaning customers could decide how much they want to pay for their food and drink. This system means all customers have an opportunity to be generous, or have an affordable experience.
- We have partnered up with local organisations and businesses to source the Cafe’s food and drink from local surplus – perfectly edible food that would otherwise be wasted – and turn it into delicious and healthy meals.
- The Cafe has also become an art space, hosting exhibitions and shows by local artists, as well as plenty of other community events.
- As with all our initiatives the cafe is a not-for-profit, with all revenue supporting the local community via the Brixton Fund.
Would you like to volunteer some of your time to the B£ Cafe? We are looking particularly for people available during afternoons and weekends who could help with preparing food and drinks, serving customers, and telling them more about the B£. Cafe experience would be a plus, but we provide full training + travel and childcare expenses if you need them.
If you’re interested, come to the Volunteer Welcome Evening on Wed 1st Feb, from 6.30pm at the Cafe. It’ll be a chance to find out more about the opportunity and meet other volunteers.
If you can’t make it on the evening but would still be interested in getting involved, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or come by the Cafe for a chat (opening hours are Mon 8am-5:30pm, Tue-Fri 8am-6pm, Sat 9am-6pm, Sun 10am-5pm).
Please spread the word among your friends and networks!
