Hospital café calls for more volunteers
PUBLISHED: 13:00 04 August 2018
Extra volunteers are needed to run a hospital café after it was forced to reduce its opening hours.
North Somerset Community Partnership (NSCP) needs more people to help out at The Little Teapot.
The café, based in a conservatory at North Somerset Community Hospital in Clevedon, has been open since 2015 but now must close on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons due to a lack of volunteers.
Peter Rideout, volunteer lead, said: “People often come in from the hospital, they may have had some bad news or be down in the dumps for some reason.
“They come in, have a chat with the volunteers, tell their story and leave like a different person.
“It is a really nice place to volunteer and help the local community.”
