Darlington cafe owner grateful for support after vandals smash window
THE owner of a non-for-profit café has thanked the Darlington community for rallying round after the premises was targeted by vandals.
A front window of Café Create on Parkgate was smashed by vandals leading to a £250 insurance bill for the building, which is a social enterprise supporting local arts and community groups.
Café owner Joanne Land, 34, appealed for help paying the bill via social networking sites and was delighted when individual donations and a fundraising night raised enough money for the repairs.
Ms Land said: “I’ve been very heartened by people’s generosity.
“Everything helps, so it’s absolutely fantastic.”
