We were delighted to have been asked by the Meath Epilepsy Charity in Godalming to design the logo for their new café and workshop, Changing Perceptions. Opened by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt in December the aim of the café is to help supplement the Meaths income after cuts across the welfare sector.
Old donated wooden furniture is given a new lease of life by the clients of the Charity and then the furniture is sold in the café. The café sells speciality teas and Barista coffee plus some of Café Meath’s finest home made cakes and light bites. Already extremely popular and with a fun, family friendly space at its heart, it is a wonderful meeting place for many young mums during the day.
Meanwhile, the workshop is going from strength to strength. It’s been very hard to slow the progression of furniture through the store enough to photograph it! The team sold everything out of the front window the very first week! But it has proved very popular with the whole community and is drawing many volunteers keen to help with what is a very eco-friendly and highly ethical enterprise. And so much fun!
“The team sold everything out of the front window the very first week!”
Please spread the word and keep donations of old wooden furniture coming in. Manager Fiona will be offering workshops soon in the Godalming shop to enable people to learn the various refurbishing and painting techniques themselves. The Meath are definitely on their way to changing people’s perceptions… about the Meath…about disability…and about home-style!
