How It Was Made

The concept of Ella’s Mobile Café was born a few of years ago, when forward thinking members of our Retail team got their heads together to come up with new initiatives that would help Rowcroft Hospice generate the income needed to provide comfort, support and specialised care for patients and their loved ones across South Devon.


And so the hunt began for a special vehicle that, with some TLC and support from the local community, could bring the idea to life. Direct from the fields of France, this beautiful classic Citroën with its distinctive corrugated bodywork has become a much-loved acquisition and is admired by all who meet her!

In January 2019 the journey of her restoration and transformation began. Thanks to the generosity of Mike Burch, MBC Partners, we are able to share that journey with you.
