Waitrose donates to Wimborne

WB WR Cheque

The Wimborne Methodist Coffee Lounge has received a donation from Wimborne Waitrose, through their Community Matters Scheme.

The church has recently celebrated 50 years in the current building, opened on 30 September 1967. At that time the Coffee Lounge was initiated, open to all, and is still flourishing today. It is open from 10.00 am to 12 noon, Mondays to Saturdays and is hugely popular, not just with members of the church, but those of other churches and the local community as a whole. It is run by a large team of volunteers.

Many people, who do not come to church, visit regularly to meet friends, to chat over a coffee, or to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the shops. If you have never visited, why not pop in the next time you are in town, you will be very warmly welcomed.

Wimborne church members thank the Waitrose Team for their interest, support and generosity.
