Chopwell Regeneration CIO
Chopwell Regeneration are a grass roots community charity founded in 2017 by local residents of a former mining village in rural west Gateshead to improve the economic conditions of their village and its residents. They are opening a donation-driven café to train residents in hospitality industry skills, provide the community with a social space, and tackle food poverty among village residents. The Fore grant will allow them to hire the chef and trainer who will run the café’s food services and teach the participants in the programme.
