A community café which has raised thousands of pounds for charity celebrated its second birthday.
LEBE’s Community Café in Lympsham turned two last week and hosted a special party to mark the occasion.
The volunteer-led pop-up café sees between 60-80 people enjoy delicious homemade cakes and lunches every Tuesday.
To mark the landmark occasion, LEBE’s is now part of the Action For Happiness movement, which encourages communities to create cafés with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Founder and parish councillor George Tuttiett said: “A spontaneous chat in a local lane led to the start of the café, which has far exceeded my hopes and expectations.
“As well as being great value, LEBE’s gives any surplus income to local organisations and national charities – last year we gave £4,978.39 and so far this year £4,403.15. It is a great achievement.”
