Roaring success at Kimberley’s training cafe

BUSINESS at a cafe in Kimberley is so good staff have decided to open for two more days a week.

Rumbletums, a cafe for people with learning disabilities in Newdigate Street, will now be open from Tuesday to Saturday each week.

A manager has just been appointed and the cafe now has the capacity to take on four more students.

Rumbletums provides work experience and training placements for young adults and college leavers with learning disabilities,

Jeff Buck who helped launch the cafe said: “It’s been a lot of hard work to get the café to this point but it’s worth it when you see the effort all the young people put in and how they are acquiring new skills and increasing their confidence.

“We hope that this might be the first step for some of them towards a full-time job.”
