Description

Volunteering in a community cafe in Colinton, The Swing Cafe at Colinton Parish Church. The cafe, and the volunteer roles, are open to everyone, church members and non-church members alike. Our volunteers cook food in the kitchen, prepare lunches, serve customers, make teas and coffees, do the washing up, and generally keep the Swing running! The Swing has been open for 20 years and some of our volunteers have been working in the cafe since it opened.

Organisation aims and objectives

The purpose of the cafe is to reach out to the community and open the doors of the church throughout the week for the benefit of the local people.
