Lauren joined Yellow Submarine in August 2018. 

Experience: I managed a cafe in an antiques centre in Chipping Norton for a couple of years where I got to do lots of baking but did end up spending all my wages on unnecessary furniture. I then travelled and moved to Australia for couple of years where I ran a coffee shop on the beach.

Roles within the charity: As one of the supervisors in the Witney cafe I help support the trainees and make sure the cafe runs smoothly.

Favourite Yellow Submarine memory: When one of our trainees served a customer on the till all on their own. They were so proud of themselves and had the biggest smile all day.

Cats or dogs? Although I am a lover of all animals i would have to choose cats. I would much rather curl up with a cat on the sofa with a cup of tea than have it knocked all over me by a dog.
