Donations

We really appreciate all donations large or small. All donations are tracked and go back into ensuring we are able to run our projects sustainably and stay vibrant as a community asset at the same time. We give regular updates whilst open as to how many donations we have received and take time to thank regular or large donors. As a social enterprise organisation, we rely on a mixed income stream of trading revenue, grant funding and donations. We appreciate all the different ways in which people choose to support our work. If you’re unable to afford a donation, just sharing our post online or telling a friend about what we do all helps. Have a look at our Project page to find out what we are delivering currently and what impact we aim to make in our community.

We have introduced online giving so you don’t need to come into the Cafe to donate.
Just click ‘donate now’ and follow the guidance.

How your donation could help

  • £1.50 could cover the cost of a hot drink
  • £5 is someone's meal in the cafe
  • £16 is a month’s worth of shops in our Social Pantry project.

We hope we have made it as easy as possible for our customers and supporters to donate, which ensures our cafe is as open and inclusive as possible to more members of our community who are more vulnerable to food poverty and insecurity.

If you are a local business who would like to support us in a one-off sponsorship,
please email us on talk@theumbrellacafe.co.uk
