Become a Friend

Sign up to become a café friend and help us all year round.

By becoming a friend of The Umbrella Café CIC, you will be helping us to continue our current projects and develop new initiatives to help our local community tackle social isolation and ensure people with additional needs can access the same opportunities.

By becoming a friend you will...

  • be invited to an annual open forum meeting (if you also live within a CT5 postcode) and have a say in setting our priorities and events for the following year
  • get the latest news via email on what we are up to
  • a monthly Umbrella recipe
  • discounted merch (coming soon!)
  • Plus, all our Friends will be put into a monthly draw so you will have the chance to win something delicious baked by us!

Most importantly, you will be making a contribution to your local community. You are welcome to choose if you donate £1, £3 or £5 monthly when you sign up. Alternatively, if you would prefer not to be a Friend but would like to support us you can also make one-off or regular donations to our Pay it Forward scheme.
