We're still collecting donations

On the 10th April 2021 we'd raised £4,065 with 92 supporters in 34 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

We believe everyone deserves a seat at the table. Walsall has been forgotten and overlooked for too long and increasingly people want somewhere to be proud of, somewhere they can invest in their town and in local independent businesses. We want to see good things happen in our town, so we are opening coffee shop with a community focus right in the heart of Walsall town centre.


Founded by members of Walsall Community Church in response to the pandemic, The Table has taken over a vacant restaurant in the heart of Walsall town centre to provide a welcoming and safe place for the community to come together in a safe environment. This town is home to an amazing and varied population from many different cultures and we want to create somewhere that welcomes all and helps bridge gaps in our community.

We hope to combat isolation and loneliness which has only been heightened by the pandemic, and support positive mental health through creative workshops, the facilitation of a positive and healthy environment that encourages relationships, support groups and other community activities, as well as being a local independent coffee shop for people to meet socially in the town. We also aim to support local small businesses by providing retail opportunities, and want to provide work experience and training for young people.

Opening in April 2021, we currently have one paid staff member and a team of volunteers but are seeking funding to provide employment for more people. This will allow us to reach more community members and see Walsall restored, one cup of coffee at a time!
