“Our charity cafés in Redcar and Scarborough have been a real success with the public and veterans alike. They help raise funds and give veterans somewhere to go for a chat and a cuppa,” adds Dorinda. “We are extremely grateful to the Covenant Fund for their support. They have enabled us to recruit a real ‘go-getter’ to help set up new Sharpe café hubs, named after the soldier famously played by Sean Bean. The fact that she can also bake wonderful cakes to sell is a definite plus!”
