Take part in UK Coffee Week, 27 September – 3 October 2010
Set to become an annual event, the first UK Coffee Week is now only a matter of weeks away.
The charitable brainchild of the Allegra Foundation, UK Coffee Week aims to promote the success and vibrancy of the UK coffee and foodservice sector, while giving back to a worthy cause.
Money raised during UK Coffee Week will help raise awareness and benefit Project Waterfall – an initiative to provide clean drinking water and education to underprivileged communities in African coffee-producing countries.
During the Week, consumers will be asked to pay a voluntary 5p levy on each cup of coffee (or food purchase). 100% of all consumer donations will go directly to fund Project Waterfall. Approximately 7000 people in the Chini Ward of the Mbulu District will be the first to benefit from the money raised.
“UK Coffee week is a real opportunity to raise the profile of the coffee and food services sector and is fully inclusive of all sized businesses within the industry,” said Kathryn Lennon, programme manager.
Leading coffee chains such as Starbucks, Costa Coffee and Caffé Nero are already confirmed participants, as are highly regarded independent coffee shops such as Flat White, Monmouth Coffee Shop and Kaffeine. Industry suppliers that are supporting the project include Lavazza, Solo Cup and Square Mile Coffee Roasters.
