A Leyland cafe has received a boost in improving its disabled facilities.

Roccoco Café, located in Chapel Brow, is run by Brothers of Charity and has been awarded £1,000 from County Coun Carolyn Evans, disabled people’s champion.

The cafe opened in late July last year and hopes to use the money to install a ‘changing places’ toilet with automatic facilities.

Roccoco currently offers individuals with learning difficulties the opportunity to take part in food-based production activities in a customer facing environment. Food-based enterprise manager Gary Powell: “We are absolutely over the moon. I would like to say a big thank you to the council.”

“At the moment we have to call our disabled toilet ‘changing places’ styled because ‘changing places’ is an award we are aiming for and it will cost us around £3,500 to get there.

“When we do, we will be the Leyland’s only place to offer it.”
