bb1 for life café
Free tea or coffee with any meal or cake
bb1 For Life is a community cafe and arts centre with a difference. Located in the heart of Blackburn town centre’s business improvement district (BID) and across from King George’s Hall, we aim to bring people from all walks of life to do things together for life. Staffed entirely by volunteers with support from faith organisations, the third sector and local businesses themselves, we have created a stylish, comfortable and welcoming space for people to come and have the best coffee and cake in town, light lunches and perhaps buy a treat or greeting card.
Our primary aim is to creatively engage with diverse groups and individuals in order to break down barriers and build friendships. We do this by being a space people feel safe and happy in and they can participate in a wide range of activities. Some of these include a book club, arts presentations, we are an accredited ILM Centre, a women building peace course through the Warrington Peace Centre and making a peace quilt. We also host groups who want a safe, yet professional environment to hold meetings and gatherings such as the Diocesan project dealing with probationers, a creative arts group involving people with learning difficulties and plans are underway to have a dementia cafe. Thanks to local businesses our meeting room on the first floor is kitted out with brand new board room tables and chairs, projector, white boards and flip charts. It can hold 30 people and has also been used as a gallery.
bb1 For Life was conceived of by Canon Shannon Ledbetter, the Community Canon of Blackburn Cathedral, but is a labour of love for all who volunteer, support and use the cafe. Why not come have a cappuccino and a homemade scone (the cheese ones made by 12 year old Leo are becoming famous) with us and see how you can get involved.
