A new coffee shop launching in Wolverhampton this month has pledged to raise funds for local charity Beacon.
The formal opening of Taste Warehouse, on Sedgley Street, takes place on Saturday 14thMarch (11am-4pm) with a ribbon cutting by the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Mike Heap.
Events on the day will include cupcake decorating for children and live music, with all funds raised on the day being donated to Beacon, which supports visually impaired people across the West Midlands.
Jenni Fryer, fundraising manager for Beacon, said: “Support from local businesses is vital for the ongoing survival of regional charities like Beacon, and we are always enormously grateful for this type of community assistance.
“We hope this is a very successful day for Taste Warehouse and the neighbourhood.”
Taste Warehouse is a modern and welcoming coffee shop and sandwich bar, offering a range of freshly made food, including gluten free and vegetarian choices.
Beacon helps people with sight loss in the West Midlands live fuller and more independent lives by offering them the finest facilities and support, from providing advice to helping find permanent accommodation in Wolverhampton.
