MISSION CAFE RECEIVES A VISIT FROM LOCAL MP

13 February 2018

We were delighted to host a visit by local MP Bob Neill at Mission Cafe last week.

Bob popped in to take a look around and try out the famous Mission Cafe coffee. He also took the time to meet with staff and a group of our residents who were visiting from Greenhill for tea and cake.

Mission Cafe was opened by Mission Care in January 2015 as a dementia-friendly space for everyone to enjoy. Since the launch of our Improving Lives campaign in 2017, the cafe has also played a vital role in supporting the programme as proceeds from sales contribute to the community initiative which helps residents enjoy a range of activities.  

Bob described the cafe as “A really valuable community facility” which we were thrilled to hear. We look forward to welcoming him back soon!
