A DROP-IN café that’s open to everyone and benefits a range of good causes is being relaunched by St Thomas’s Church, Salisbury.

It takes place on Friday mornings at St Thomas’s House in St Thomas’s Square.

Among up and coming events is a quiche and cake day in aid of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Shoppers can pop in on Friday, April 25, between 10am and 2pm, when all sorts of tasty home-made goodies will be on offer as well as tea and coffee.

Entry is free, and there will be a range of RSPB merchandise on sale, as well as advice on how people can help make their homes and gardens wildlife-friendly.

St Thomas’s aim is to provide a venue for people to meet regularly and chat, while enjoying home-made food and reasonable prices.

Parish manager Lynn Kinsey said the first Friday café of every month is the Pantry Partnership’s Pop-up Pantry, which uses ‘leftover’ ingredients from local supermarkets and restaurants and turns them into two-course lunches. The money raised from these is used to help feed people in need.

Other regulars running the café are Wessex Stoma Care and the Motor Neurone Disease Association, while other charities can also book a slot by emailing Friday.cafe@stthomassalisbury.co.uk.
