A special thank you to all who could make it to the Dapto Anglican Café last week for the Campbell Page Community grant announcement. Pictured above is Julia North (left) and Dean McRae (far right) presenting a $7,500 cheque on behalf of Campbell Page, to café manager Jill Pearce.
Julia, who runs the Campbell Page Dapto hub said that the event was a ‘great way to commemorate the grant’, but also a ‘ hugely positive exercise in getting together as a united community’. The Dapto Anglican Pastor Stephen Semenchuk, also made a special announcement on the day offering his sincere thanks for the support of the dedicated Campbell Page team.
The day was a great opportunity to hear about the impact the cafe is already having on the Dapto Community. Young locals are able to receive retail and hospitality training at the venue, and the café also provides a central space for the community to connect.
Many stories were shared about how the café has instilled confidence in young staff members (pictured below), by providing them with a sense of purpose and direction. Campbell Page looks forward to a continued alliance with the cafe, as it fosters employment opportunities and independence for Dapto residents.
If you live in the area of Dapto or its surrounds, make sure you pop in for a barista made coffee at the cafe!
