BUSINESSES in Cirencester are giving their support to the Churn Coffee Cascade fundraiser.

Launched by The Churn Project earlier this month, the fundraiser is now gaining momentum as the popular community charity try to generate vital funds to maintain and hopefully extend its reach.

Lady Bathurst,who is behind the Beano coffee kiosk in Cirencester Park, is throwing her support behind the initiative.

Financial planning advisors St James’s Place Wealth Management, estate agents Perry Bishop and Chambers, and other local businesses have also supported the fundraiser.

Lady Bathurst will host a Churn Coffee Cascade event in the park on Friday, October 12, from 10.30am to 12pm.

Everyone is welcome, and for every cup of coffee sold, £1 will be donated to The Churn Project.

Churn Coffee Cascade events are being organised to raise funds to support the charity’s Good Neighbours scheme, where volunteers from the charity visit older people in the community on a regular basis, preventing loneliness and isolation.

To take part in this truly community-based initiative, visit the charity’s Facebook page at TheChurnProject, email, or call 01285 380038 for further information.
