LUMINUS Ferry Project’s clients and employees has thrown open the doors to Octavia View until Saturday as part of the Wisbech Rose Fair.

Octavia’s Café, situated in the courtyard of Octavia View, will be open for the special event. There will also be a craft fair, assisted by clients of Ferry Project.

The clients will all be volunteering their time to give something back to Ferry Project and the Wisbech community. Supporting the craft fair will also give the clients valuable work experience which will help them gain the skills they need to find employment.

Octavia’s Café will be offering cream teas, cakes, scones and other tempting treats in the Grade II listed surroundings of Octavia View. The entrance can be found opposite Somers Road car park in the heart of Wisbech’s South Brink.

The craft fair will include a number of different stalls selling a range of goods and a cake stall, where all the cakes on the stall have been cooked and donated by Luminus staff. The money received from the sales will be given to women’s cancer charities.

Chan Abraham Chairman of Ferry Project said: “At Luminus we aim to change the world where we are and encourage others to do the same.

“The Rose Fair has given clients and staff of the Ferry Project the chance to volunteer their time and their skills to benefit the Wisbech community.

“Ferry Project provides more than accommodation - it helps people to think how to change the direction of their lives and start to make a positive difference in the community around them.”
