The Times Series campaign to save a Barnet Mencap juice bar has now raised more than £2,000.


The Give Us Some Juice campaign has raised £2,059 to date which is 41 per cent of the target.


The Times Series is running the campaign to help Barnet Mencap’s Drink it Juice Bar raise the £5,000 it needs to avoid closure at the end of the year.

The bar at Finchley Youth Theatre in High Road, East Finchley, is run by people with learning disabilities and is open every Saturday from 11.30am until 2.30pm.

While working in the bar the employees also gain qualifications in customer services, health and safety and first aid.


Barnet Mencap received a corporate grant from Barnet Council to set up the juice bar last July, but the funding ran out in December.

Since then Barnet Mencap has been running the juice bar from the income it generates.
