Charity expands with new Lincoln coffee shop

A charity focused on supporting projects to stop child trafficking in Nepal has expanded by opening a coffee shop in uphill Lincoln.

Lincs2Nepal, which was founded in 2009 by Garry Goddard (pictured), has so far helped 53 trafficked children find their families and also supported educational programmes in two Nepalese schools.

Now, Coffee@Lincs2Nepal on Burton Road will help raise money for the charity’s ongoing efforts.

The coffee shop is situated next to the charity shop and will sell hot and cold drinks, as well as homemade cakes.

Goddard said: “Since we opened our shop last October we are enjoying being in this part of the city and the positive feedback we have received.

“To open a coffee shop is the next logical expansion for us — we would like to integrate ourselves further into the local community by offering our customers more opportunities to support the charity with food and drink at sensible prices, whilst also providing a venue for local meetings and clubs.”

The coffee shop will open to the public on Saturday, June 2.
