A community cafe run by a company which helps disabled and disadvantaged people has promoted the importance of eating breakfast.

Hot sausages, bacon and egg rolls and baguettes have been served as part of National Breakfast Week at @TheRec in Stowmarket.

Catering brand manager, Jackie Curtis, said: “The new breakfast baps seem to be going down a treat.

“We are launching the new breakfast rolls to coincide with Breakfast Week but plan to continue offering the discount until the end of February.”

The Realise Futures-run cafe is a project which came about because of a partnership with Stowmarket Town Council and MENTA, the Suffolk Enterprise Agency – with the council investing £40,000 in the cafe.

Realise Futures is a community interest company which helps people who are disabled or disadvantaged – with 40% of its workforce being disabled or disadvantaged.

As a social enterprise, it reinvests its profits back 
into the organisation to continue its mission to create opportunities for people.

The cafe is on the Recreation Ground park in the town, next to Finborough Road.
