Sept 2013, Craig White died of a heroin overdose in a car park in Cardiff, he was the brother of Risha Lancaster. Coffee4Craig began as a reaction to his death and a desire to make the world a little better for those who find themselves on the streets.
January 16 2014 Coffee4Craig started the first static C4C street kitchen on Piccadilly Gardens Manchester, with Northwest first aid, this became 3 nights a week between 7pm and 9pm Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Coalition of Relief
2015 Coffee4Craig, Lifeshare, and CAN team together to start COR (Coalition of Relief Network.) This forum is for grassroots charities and organisations working together to provide a sustainable long term support for people sleeping on the streets in Greater Manchester.
C4C moved indoors to host seven nights a week from Centre Point North on Oldham Street, Manchester.
Working with CentrePoint, MCC, North West First Aid, Team VOW and all the amazing teams who cook with Not Just Soup and all the fantastic volunteers who make C4C what it is, a family.
