Sarah, Nicola, Alex, Emily and Gareth have been busy creating Christmas card designs based on the theme of “Lights and Baubles”. The designs were created using wax and ink. We were delighted with the results. We hope you like them too.
They are available to buy singly or in mixed packs of 5 and 10 from the Café. Please feel free to order a selection of the ones you like the most. Cards are 120 x 120 square, printed on high quality card with envelopes.

Rumbletums are delighted to be this months recipient of the Waitrose Community Matters award of £500. Each month 3 causes are selected to go forward for voting by the public in their store and Rumbletums have come top of the poll! Thanks to all of you who voted for us whilst doing your shopping. Don’t forget to drop in to out Café in Kimberley and enjoy delicious cakes and coffees as a well earned treat.
In November 2017 we learned that our application to the Santander Foundation was successful. The grant will be used to help fund a part time member of staff which means that we can continue to offer excellent support to our trainees. Amy, Emma and Sarah went to visit the Beeston Santander branch to receive our Cheque (which is actually bigger than Amy!) Thanks so much to Santander and the lovely staff there for their generosity and warmth. We look forward to Kayleigh and Maria visiting us to see the café first hand.
This year Rumbletums has been fortunate to have the Nottingham engineering firm LB Foster partner with us in Fund raising. We started off the year with a cake sale and made sure that the folks there got a flavour of our lovely home-made produce. The cake theme continued when, as part of Christmas jumper day, one of Derek’s gorgeous Angel Christmas cakes was raffled off to the lucky LB Foster employees. So far, they have raised a generous £344.05 for us for which we are grateful. Many thanks and more power to the engineers!!
Thanks to all who voted for us in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. We were delighted to be voted in the top spot to receive a grant to develop our allotment. We will let you know how we are getting on at developing the allotment. Stay tuned!
