Nicky Morgan unveils Rotary plaque
President Alison Porter welcomed local Loughborough MP and Secretary of State for Education Nicky Morgan, the Mayor and Mayoress of Charnwood to the Mountsorrel Youth Cafe on Saturday January 24th.
Nicky unveiled aplaque recording Rotary's involvement and gave a short address welcoming everyone, endorsing the Cafe's important role in the community and thanking the Rotary Club of the Soar Valley for funding an update of the kitchen.
The Rotary Club together with Rotary Foundation (Rotary International's own charity) gave £1000 to update the kitchen equipment to enable it to become a community based cafe open to all ages rather than just a place for the village young people to meet. The cafe will now open Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm providing lunches and light snacks for all as well as its usual evening activities.
Following the official opening Nicky and the Mayor and Mayoress joined over 20 senior citizens for a three course lunch served by Youth Cafe members.
