Helston’s Furry Youth Cafe is in “desperate” need of new volunteers to come forward.

A number of people who had been helping at the cafe in Meneage Street, above Warren’s Bakery, had now got jobs and moved on – in many cases thanks to their involvement with the youth project.

Following a meeting on at the cafe on Monday, community network manager Charlotte Chadwick said: “We desperately need new volunteers to come forward.”

Anyone interested needs to be able to offer a couple of hours either weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on how much time they have to spare.

The cafe opens on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 6.30pm to 9pm.

Volunteers will need to undergo a Criminal Records Bureau check and safeguarding training.
