Springboard are currently crowdfunding for The Lakes Cafe based in Hetton Lyons Country Park. We are crowdfunding to create a community and learning café based at Hetton Lyons Country Park offering training and employment opportunities for those with special educational needs.

We plan to re-open The Lakes Café at Hetton Lyons Country Park as a learning café offering volunteering and learning opportunities for learners and individuals with special educational needs, autism and learning difficulties and disorders. The disability friendly and dog friendly café will also add a needed facility to Hetton, providing a resting space, available 7 days a week serving hot and cold food and drinks to the public.

Hetton Lyons Country Park is based in the Coalfields. This improvement will help to establish the park as a destination for people from other areas of the city to visit the park and the wider area. Currently the park is used for several large events each year, what it lacks is consistent footfall and the plan for the reboot of the Lakes Café is to create another reason for people to repeat visit.
