Rugby Christmas Crackerteria has been serving up hundreds of meals for people in the town for nearly 25 years to help raise thousands of pounds for charity.

It’s part of Rugby Christmas Cracker youth project which gives young people a chance to learn new skills in catering and radio broadcasting.

Project co-ordinator Katie Thomas said: “The cafe opens during December and raises issues and funds for the developing world.

“There’s still time to get involved and help raise much needed funds.”

Rugby Crackerteria will be open for delicious homemade food from 10am – 6pm in the Swan Centre near Asda, Monday to Saturday.

Homemade soup, cakes, pizza and bacon baguettes will be on the menu and there are still places for five-course festive meals.

All the profits will be going to help people from the poorest slum communities in Bangalore, India.

It will help to give them training in tailoring skills so that they can earn a living and so support their families.

If anyone would like to present a show on the radio, book a table for the evening meal or help in the Crackerteria contact Katie on 07757 562504 or (01788) 813064, or email
