Palm of hand holding coffee beansWe really appreciate any amount you can spare – it all adds up! All donations will be used to further the training, support and advice our Cafe participants receive. We always need new equipment for the kitchen which can be costly to buy or replace. Thank you in advance for you support.

If you would prefer to buy something specific for the Arc Cafe, please view our Amazon wishlist. You can simply pick something that fits your budget, from sponges to teabags to Sabatier chef’s knives. If you buy anything worth £5 or over we will personally thank you with a free hot drink of your choice.

Fundraising Ideas

If you believe in our cause and have seen how well the Cafe works to help out people in recovery, why not help us to fundraise? There’s so many ways to raise money for charity, here’s a few ideas:

  • Baking sale
  • Give something up for a set period of time for sponsorship.
  • Sponsored run or other sport – from a 5k run to a marathon or triathlon, this can be a great way to raise money!
  • Organise an event in aid of the Arc – a film night, quiz, games night, music/dancing, fun pet show or other interesting events

JustGiving Campaign

Coming soon, to raise funds for a very exciting new venture with the Arc Cafe….

Skill Sharing

Help us out by giving your time and sharing your skills

Are you a professionally trained chef? A food hygiene expert? Know how to bake British Bake Off standard cakes? Or have training in addiction, social work, mental health recovery and would be willing to give up some of your time?


We would love you to come in and teach our staff and volunteers your skills. You’ll be helping out your local charity and having fun at the same time.

Equally if you have experience or enthusiasm for fundraising we’d love to have you on board!

Please get in touch to chat with us about opportunities.


If you are in recovery and would like to come and be a Cafe volunteer, please go to the Volunteers page for more information.
