Tea Bar Team

The Tea Bar Team

The Tea Bar Team are all volunteers, under the supervision of our Team Coach, Tanya. Typically, team members are looking for work experience in a catering environment, but we welcome anyone who would like to join us, even for a few hours per week. 

No prior experience is required. Volunteers receive full training and often will gain a Food Hygiene Certificate.

We are also interested in people who have more catering or retail experience and would like to mentor other team members.
