Cafe Zu! Coffee and FREE Crochet lessons for such a good cause.

Have you wanted to learn how to Crochet?
If so read on!
Anyone who follows my life in Chalky's World will know that I work/create/make/hook and am generally 
happier when a charitable aspect is dominant in my life!

Well my daughter has recently returned from having fun in Oz and has got a job as manager at Cafe Zu!

A small cafe attached to an enterprise helping young people in Devon!

It is tucked away upstairs in Newton Abbot,
All the profits generated in the cafe go to help young people in Devon.

Of course as dutiful parents we have felt the need to show support at coffee time.
Oh ,and William has tried it too.

And it really would be rude not to try the cakes
.Raspberry and white chocolate.

Banana and Walnut.

Nutella and vanilla.

All those hours of her wearing a little apron when she was little and helping with the baking has truly paid dividends!

And don't forget the afternoon tea. and a cupcake!

Add the lunch.
Meals as delicious as Broad Bean and Chorizo Casoulet.

Home made wedges with chilli,cheese and sour cream.

Just simply scrummy and at £2.95 for a coffee and cake and the meals at about £4.95 who could resist?

So what I am going to do to try and boost the funds?
Well, what I do!
What I love doing the most!
Not hard to guess I am sure.

Crochet and coffee sessions!
I am going to sit in the corner with some hooks and yarn and hope some lovely people call in to to have a free lesson and treat themselves to  a coffee and some cake and maybe they will give a donation to such a worthy cause.
Details of dates and times can be found in Cafe Zu!
