The café is open seven days a week providing sit-in and take-away hot/cold drinks, soup, cakes and sandwiches.

Our ReCHarge café volunteers are a key part of the team, helping to give customers a welcoming and positive café experience.

Volunteer activities include helping to:
-meet and greet customers
-keep the café and servery areas clean and tidy
-prepare food/drinks
-take payments

Volunteers are also trained and encouraged to promote Charlie House events and activities to potential families, volunteers, supporters and members of the public.

All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated.

Organisation aims and objectives

Charlie House was established to help make life better for babies, children and young people who have life-threatening or life-limiting conditions, and to support their parents, brothers and sisters, and all those who love them. We started in 2011 and, through the generosity of others, we have been able to develop and grow our projects to support these wonderful children. With continued support we hope to be there when families need us most.
