Enjoy a Cuppa!

Look for a Cuppa Kindness hanging in a cafe window. It's for you.

If you have fallen on harder times and don’t have the money to treat yourself to a cuppa, look for a Cuppa Kindness hanging in a cafe window. It’s for you. Feel the kindness of your community and know you are not alone.

Colchester Foodbank Community Organisers will also be available to chat with you, in the cafe, ready to listen to you. By listening and understanding, we may be able to bring about positive change for you and for our community in Colchester.

Enjoy a #cuppakindness. One day, you can pay it forward too.
