The Rural Community Council (RCC) are a charity with many similar views to our own. They aim to improve people’s lives by connecting them with others, helping to enhance their mental wellbeing, increasing their awareness, skills and confidence, and supporting them to volunteer and become more active in their local community. Their Rural Coffee Connect van provided refreshments to some of our volunteers last year, between lock-downs, helping us to connect with our volunteers to establish types of community interests.
They also helped us on our journey to becoming a registered charity.
