The Healthy Living Network and Coleshill Hub are working in partnership to deliver a Community Café and Honesty Shop once monthly from Coleshill Town Hall. Our first Honesty Shop was run on February 23rd and was an amazing success, helping over 43 individuals and funds being raised to support the Ediblelinks food bank: The Honesty Shop is a way of increasing access to healthy food, reducing food related stress and avoiding food waste. It is supported by Ediblelinks, a food bank and community food redistribution project in Atherstone.
Ran by a team of dedicated volunteers, the shop operates a no fixed price policy, instead shoppers donate what they can afford. A suggested donation of 30-40% of the retail value enables the shop to continue collection, storage and delivery of goods.
All manner of items can be available from nappies and baby items, fresh fruit and veg, cosmetics, tins, pet foods, cereals, and more. As we get to know our clients we can endeavour to make sure that necessary items are in stock, where possible.
The next shops will take place on Friday March 23rd, Friday April 27th and Friday May 25th
from 10-1pm supported by the Community Café where tea, coffee and breakfast items are freshly prepared for a small donation.
The Honesty Shop is also attended by different local groups, charities and support agencies offering a wealth of advice & guidance.
