We are a coffee lounge is Huddersfield, providing safe spaces for Veterans and families. We help combat social isolation and suicide, through various group activities, care home to Tommy’s coffee mornings, days out, arts and craft therapy groups, veterans and veterans in care Christmas dinners, letter writing activities for those that are home alone through Give a few words, visits to veterans in Hospitals, sensory play days for families with disabled and or autistic children. The Mess Club Dinners and more.
We have created a safe and warm place to come and be yourself, you can sit with a brew and read a book, do a puzzle book, play board games and cards, or you can get involved with old stories and go down memory lane with like minded people. If you simply want to sit in quiet then this is not a problem, you can join in when you are ready. There is no pressure to join in or drink up and leave, you can sit for as long as you like.
Our staff provide peer to peer support and if we feel you need a little bit more help we will sit and help sign post you to the right people to help.
We serve hot and cold foods, along with our own brand of coffee, teas and cold drinks. Our popular food choices are the Currywurst and Bratwurst straight from Germany, for those who served in Germany its like you never left, our ingredients are brought in direct for Germany for that authentic taste. This also peaks a lot of old stories shared and most laughter alongside.
As we grow we will have Volunteer positions, so keep an eye out.
We regularly have Breakfast clubs use Tommy’s as a meeting place, we do not hold a license for alcohol, as we understand that a lot of veterans may have addictions, this is a place where you can come and feel at ease knowing there is nothing on site.
We have free WiFi, students and anyone wanting a change of scenery for remote working are more than welcome.
Our projects are constantly growing the more we grow and network.
