We have been very lucky to have many highlights in our short period of opening. It’s great to get recognition for all the hard work we do behind the scenes. We were honoured to be feature live on national TV.
Join us from 6:30am tomorrow when BBC Breakfast will be broadcasting LIVE from 6/8! We’ll be giving away free coffee to anyone wishing to come down and be a part of our slice of fame on the small screen!
UK Coffee Week is a celebration of all things coffee. Over seven days, coffee industry experts get together and showcase different aspects of specialty coffee. This is the third UK Coffee Week and the most ambitious yet.
Run by the Allegra Foundation, the fundraising event ‘provides a unique opportunity for branded coffee chains, independent coffee shops and industry suppliers to collaborate and celebrate the success of the industry, while raising money for Project Waterfall.’
UK Coffee Week raises valuable funds for Project Waterfall, providing sustainable clean water projects in deprived African communities. This year, its aim is to give some of the poorest and most marginalised communities in Tanzania (where only 54% of people have clean water) access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.
Last year, over £100,000 was raised through UK Coffee Week and this year the project aims to raise even more. Access to clean, safe water and good sanitation is a basic human right and together we can make this a reality for those in need. There are many different ways to get involved and help out, and in store we will be asking you to help us raise money through donating 5p per coffee towards the foundation. We will also be selling raffle tickets all week, at the end of which one lucky winner will win FREE COFFEE FOR A YEAR!
Let’s get raising!
