AN eco cafe is serving up support to a Keighley social supermarket.

Riddlesden Green Connection was amongst the beneficiaries in the latest Community Giving initiative at Keighley's Skipton Building Society branch.

And the group – which runs a monthly community cafe – has donated its share to The Good Food Shop, in the Airedale Shopping Centre.

People are referred to The Good Food Shop, which stocks a range of food items and other essential products, by support agencies and schools.

The shop has seen demand for its services grow, and this year extended its opening hours to 10am-3pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

A spokesperson for Riddlesden Green Connection says: "As a not-for-profit enterprise, we always said that any 'win' through the Community Giving scheme would go to The Good Food Shop.

"Its green action is that it sells items from both small donators, such as ordinary gardeners who have a fruit or vegetable glut, to the Leeds branch of the charity FareShare – which redistributes excess food from many sources, including shops and farms."

Riddlesden Green Connection community cafe is held at St Mary’s Meeting Room, Banks Lane, on the second Saturday of each month, from 10am-12.30pm. Visit
