Community fundraising

After my husband died, I had severe depression – I was on the verge of committing suicide. There was nothing left in my life. I came down to Yarpole Community Shop and Café and I can honestly say, that for somebody in my situation, it saved my life. It gave me a focus, it gave me a purpose – you’re in the community again. You meet new people, it’s improved my math skills and it’s certainly improved my computer skills. I love it. I absolutely love it.
