Getting into gear to care for our community
Dating from 1973, Rowcroft’s iconic vintage van was lovingly restored and carefully converted into a mobile café serving teas, Devon-roasted barista coffees, hot chocolate, iced coffees, locally baked cakes and light lunches. Known as Ella’s Mobile Café (named after Ella Rowcroft, whose generosity led to the foundation of Rowcroft Hospice),
The quirky 47-year-old van, affectionately named ‘Ella’, was renovated over recent years by students from South Devon College. Fitted with a sleek modern kitchen interior, Ella received generous support from other local organisations including Central Garage Torbay, Brixham Crafting Bees, Van-Formers, Salters Garage and Motor Parts Direct
