Can you help the Old Cottage Coffee Shop’s 2020 Christmas appeal?

Old Cottage Cafe
Can you help the Old Cottage Coffee Shop this Christmas?

The Old Cottage Coffee Shop in Charlton Park is one of the area’s local gems. Earlier this year, its owners Michael and Mimi were delivering food to the vulnerable during the spring lockdown. And every Christmas Day, it has hosted festive dinners for the elderly.

Things are different this year – so they are making 24 boxes to deliver to older people on Christmas Day. And Michael and Mimi are asking for your help.

Can you write a Christmas card for each person? Michael and Mimi will send you a name and you can write a personal message.

Can you donate presents and snacks for nine men and 15 women?

Can you help deliver on Christmas Day between 11am and noon?

…or could you donate cash to help the project?

If you can help, drop in at the cafe (open Wed-Sun, 9am-4pm), text 07737 922 792 or email m.speak9[at]
