We regret to inform you that due to the Coronavirus outbreak the Water Lily Cafe has been temporarily closed.

We will continue to provide free 1:1 support for women in our care via phone and Skype and will accept new referrals provided we have the capacity to do so. We are also continuing to provide them with a free meal once a week as a take away.  We are hoping to extend this service to help feed school children/families on low income and other vulnerable people. If you are able to donate food then please contact our Cafe Supervisor you can make a donation: click here

However, we need your help to help others…

We understand that this is an anxious and difficult time for everyone, but particularly for those who are elderly, isolated or have underlying medical condition.  For that reason we are working closely with CCP (Christchurch Community Partnership) and CAN (Community Action Network) who are in communication with BCP to get a team of people together to deliver services to those in need. These include, delivering shopping, craft packs, collecting prescriptions, posting mail, offering prayer or making a friendly phone call.

If you would like to help then please contact Liz Carter at: manager@waterlilyproject.org.uk (available Tue, Wed, Thu) or Anne-Marit at: cafe@waterlilyproject.org.uk (available Mon & Fri)
