Who knew that coffee and scones could miraculously turn into a wheelchair??

This doesn’t actually happen, but the profits from the Wharekaka Auxiliary Pop Up Cafe at the recent Martinborough Fair , are being put towards the purchase of a new all -terrain wheelchair for use by residents.

Most of you will know of the very successful tea rooms that the local Lions have run for many years at the fairs. Last year and this, they have very generously given Wharekaka the opportunity to run one of these, in order to generate much needed funds.

This year we operated our Pop up Cafe at the March fair and were thrilled with the amount realised.

We have previously purchased an all terrain wheelchair and this has proved to be so useful that we have ordered a second larger version for some of our taller residents.

Once again we are extremely grateful to the Lions for giving us this opportunity. It is wonderful to see charitable organisations working together for the good of the community.

So next time you eat a scone, just imagine it turning into a wheelchair taking an elderly person somewhere they couldn’t normally go.
