Thalis for Tales - Fundraiser

OpenStoryTellers are delighted to have the support of Lungi Babas and Sustainable Frome to fundraise for specialist outreach support for people with learning disabilities and autism who have become particularly isolated as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

People with learning disabilities have been disproportionately affected by the virus, with many clinically vulnerable to it and more likely to suffer worse outcomes as a result. The outreach support will help people who are not able to get out and about, to stay connected, become digitally included and to increase their wellbeing.


To celebrate their 6th birthday, Lungi Babas - the delicious South Indian inspired cafe in Frome - have chosen to support OpenStoryTellers and donate funds from every 6th thali sold!


That equates to an amazing 17% of their thali revenue! Over the next three months, Lungi Babas will also make donations from other areas of their work too, to support the project. 

Do enjoy a delicious thali while helping to raise money for OpenStoryTellers at the same time - tag us on social media with the hashtag #ThalisForTales
