Alfreton Park School has opened a pop-up cafe outside its school gates, offering students work experience while raising money for its Deer Shed project.
The cafe, located outside the school gates in Alfreton Park, will be open every Monday and Friday between 10.30am and 2.30pm.
It will sell a variety of treats, including hot drinks and sweet and savoury snacks.
Dog treats and water will also be available for any four-legged visitors.
The project is a work experience opportunity for students at the school, which is for children aged two to 19 with a range of special educational needs and disabilities.
All proceeds from the project will go towards the Deer Shed Cafe – a project being organised by the school which will see the site of a former deer shed in Alfreton Park transformed into a cafe and shop.
Once open, it will provide valuable work experience opportunities to young people with learning difficulties. However, the school needs to raise £250,000 to be able to build it.
