  • Posted

A major refurbishment of a Worcester charity’s café has been given a boost thanks to a donation from a leading law firm.

Law firm mfg Solicitors have supported county charity Onside, which works with adults who are vulnerable, disadvantaged or at risk of being discriminated against. 

The £1,260 donation from the charitable firm of lawyers is going towards the refurbishment of Onside’s coffee shop and breakfast bar in the centre of Worcester.

Mix Café, which is situated in the County Enterprises Building on St Paul’s Street, puts any profit back into Onside to help the transform lives of people with a range of vulnerabilities including mental and physical ill health, sensory impairment, learning disabilities and drug and alcohol misuse.

Kirsten Bridgewater, partner at mfg Solicitors, said: “We believe very strongly in supporting the work of charities that make a difference to people’s lives across Worcestershire and the wider region.

“Having one of our offices in Worcester, where Onside is based, we have seen up close the amazing work they have been doing and we are thrilled to able to help the charity continue to thrive. Refreshing its city centre café will play a vital role in their future fundraising.”

Welcoming the donation, Onside Deputy Chief Executive Officer Cathy Jackson-Read said: “We are very grateful to mfg Solicitors for their support and recognition of the transformative role Onside plays in the community here in Worcester.

“Our café is an important part of our work providing real life work opportunities for people with learning difficulties as well as raising much needed funds.”
