A STUDENT-driven campaign to unite communities and celebrate diversity in Wrexham has gone from strength to strength.
So much so the Culture Collective plan more events over the next academic year.

Bringing together people of different faiths and backgrounds and promoting their heritage, history, and traditions.
The first was attended by more than 140 people and showcased food and drink from around the world. As well as music, dance, literature and art. “We invited students and local organisations to celebrate Wrexham’s culturally diverse community,” said Judith. “What started as a one-off project led to a programme of events, and now the learners plan to continue next year.”
Patients at Nightingale House Hospice enjoy freshly prepared meals, crafted by dedicated staff and volunteers from the award-winning Caffi Cwtch team. Beyond serving delicious dishes to the visitors from the community, the cafe’s proceeds also contribute to supporting patient care at the hospice.
Peter Jackson has managed the team at Caffi Cwtch since it opened 7 years ago. Peter Jackson of Caffi Cwtch He explains, “The team is made up of 9 paid staff and about 50 volunteers. We provide food not only for customers but also for our patients in the Inpatient Unit and on the Well-being Programme. We don’t take orders between 11:45 and 12:15 because patients are always our priority.”
“Some customers have been coming since Caffi Cwtch opened, like the Rotary Club, who gather here on Wednesday mornings.” “The cafe isn’t just for customers who want a bite to eat. It’s also a place where patients’ relatives come when they visit their loved ones. They come to the cafe for some downtime and, occasionally, patients will come to the cafe too.”
