Community Voice

Independent Sellers Market

Community Bees runs occasional Market Cafes at St Crux in York providing affordable food and drink in a friendly, safe space for people who might otherwise feel lonely or socially isolated to come and relax in. There is always someone to talk to who goes out of their way to make everyone feel included and welcome. 

Any money raised by the market is used to provide activities that reduce isolation and loneliness, for Small Acts of Kindness and also to support the most disadvantaged people within the community.
