Vital funds will be raised for life-saving cancer research in Yorkshire through the opening of a new charity shop and cafe at Hornbeam Park in Harrogate next week.

From Monday 9th October, people will have the opportunity to browse Yorkshire Cancer Research’s latest boutique-style shop and sample a range of freshly made and locally sourced food at the charity’s first ever cafe.

The shop and cafe, based at the charity’s new centre on Hornbeam Square West, will help fund services like Active Together, a pioneering fitness, nutrition and wellbeing programme for people with cancer. The programme will be available at the same centre from November.

Tony Graham, Director of Retail said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming people to our stylish new charity shop and cafe. Our beautifully-stocked shop will offer a unique experience where people can purchase high quality pre-loved fashion, accessories, home-ware, books and records.

“Thanks to supporters’ kind donations, the shop offers a range of desirable products - from vintage collectables and high-end labels to nearly-new fashion. Customers are welcome to shop, try on outfits, discover books, listen to records or simply come and browse.”

Cafe Hornbeam will serve healthy breakfasts, nutritious made-to-order waffles, sandwiches and salads. Harrogate-based bakery Baltzersen's will be providing daily pastries and cakes, and there will be freshly brewed coffee, a range of speciality teas, shakes and smoothies on offer.

Tony added: “The cafe has been designed to create a warm and welcoming environment for customers to enjoy. We hope the new centre will be a great place to come and for a browse or meet up with friends, while helping to save lives in Yorkshire. With both the shop and the cafe staffed with the help of friendly volunteers, all profits will help fund vital cancer research and services for people living in our region.”
