Read our latest Annual Review
“As I embark on a (late) career change in a couple of weeks’ time, one of the saddest consequences for me is not to be able to continue volunteering at the Style Acre Tea Room at Savages in Blewbury. I have only been doing this since March this year but have enjoyed it far more than I ever believed I would.
It has been an amazing experience working alongside a team of extremely friendly, fun and interesting people to the extent that it was hard to drag myself away at the end of each shift.
Having had first hand experience of this environment and knowing that they have a shortage of volunteers, I attach an article below, written by Style Acre, asking for some help.
If you have any spare time, do give it some thought, as it really is the most rewarding workplace, enjoyable work and a fantastic organisation to volunteer for.”
The Style Acre Tea Room needs your help!
The Style Acre Tea Room at Savages in Blewbury is looking for volunteers to join our friendly team. Our tea room provides work experience for people with learning disabilities, helping them develop important work skills. Our friendly team of volunteers play a vital role in helping us keep the tea room running, serving customers and preparing food.
It offers an opportunity to meet new people, in a friendly but fast paced environment. Current volunteers call it a ‘rewarding experience’, as they see the effect of their help, as the people we support learn new skills and increase confidence.
The team is currently looking for help on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursday, although we would be delighted with help any day of the week.
If you feel you can support us please contact our Volunteer Officer, Chris via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 01491 827593

A corporate volunteer team from Lombard donated their time and helped us prepare our Market Garden for the colder months ahead! We are so thankful and pleased that they enjoyed working alongside people we support.
Working collaboratively with Sustainable Wantage and the Charlton Centre, the market garden offers people with learning disabilities the opportunity to develop skills and enjoy gardening. The garden provides opportunities to be involved in meaningful and rewarding occupation in a quiet, safe environment, while delivering work experience. Some of the produce from the garden is used at our tea room.
Whether individual or corporate, this setting provides a wonderful volunteer opportunity and we would love to hear from you if you are interested in supporting us this way. Please get in touch with Chris.
