Stephen Merchant visits the Arc Cafe

We were delighted that comedian, writer and director Stephen Merchant visited ARA’s  Arc Café. The Arc Café, run in partnership with St Mary Redcliffe Church, offers fantastic food to its customers and has a huge impact on the lives of its volunteers.

Stephen said , ” People need help to overcome their problems and projects like the Arc Café are well worth supporting”.

To bring in the New Year, ARA is setting up “Friends of the Arc Café”. This will include businesses, individuals, enterprises and organisations. Our Friends will support the café with increased footfall, catering orders, sponsorship and donations.

To become a Friend of the Arc Café please contact Chloe Diamond on 0117 9300282 or chloediamond@addictionrecovery.org.uk
