The sale was organised by a team of adults with learning difficulties taking part in a training programme run by Cambridgeshire County Council.

To put a spring in local people's step there was also a range of Easter goodies to eat.

The Community Café is based at March Community Centre and is open every Wednesday morning from 11am to 1pm. The Café holds regular enterprise activities to offer disadvantaged adults living in the March community a chance to learn practical work  skills, build confidence and greater independence.

Jane Shardlow, Foundation Learning and Employability Manager at Cambridgeshire County Council, said:

I'm really proud of what our team achieved with their sale. They worked really hard and have developed some news skills, which are important for helping develop confidence in all sorts of social and work situations. A big thank you to all those local people who came along to the sale and who continue to support the café.

County Councillor David Harty, Cambridgeshire County Council Cabinet Member for Education and learning, added:

It's inspiring to hear what the community café in March is achieving. The programme is helping them to develop skills and confidence.
