De Café celebrated its 5th birthday in style on Friday 17th September. Over 30 De café regulars attended the group alongside some special guests to mark the occasion. The day also saw the launch of the De Café “Our stories” booklet.
“Our stories” was developed as all at De café agreed that it was important to ensure that the reasons why people got in touch with De Café and why they have continue to attend should not be lost.
Our thanks go to all who contributed and our volunteer Karen Faull (pictured above with Ceartas chairperson Martin Brickley and information worker Lyndsey Macdonald). Karen met with De café users and alongside Lyndsey collated peoples’ experiences for the booklet.
It is hoped that “Our Stories” as well as being a special reminder will also be used as a means of encouraging others to attend De Cafe. Copies are available from the Ceartas office.
