A new Café opened this week, in response to the 2011 riots, to offer young people training, work experience and volunteering, opportunities in the local community.
The Red Route Café on Lower Clapton Road, was developed through the fund raising efforts of CSV Springboard Hackney learning center. Lord Levy, Richard Lockwood, and well known music mogul Pete Waterman, were all present at the opening event.
Lord Levy also spoke of the potential of the venture, “I’ve no doubt the social enterprise will be a wonderful opportunity for our young learners, to gain crucial skills and training”.
