CHARITY - SHAREWEAR CLOTHING SCHEME
In 2023 we won a great taste award for a coffee we called 'BLEND 47'
We have decided to dedicate this blend and its award, to help support charities raise both well needed funds and awareness of the great work they are doing for local communities.
So when you purchase any bag of 'BLEND 47' you can be assured you will still be getting the same 'Great Tasting' coffee you expect from us, with the added pleasure knowing you are supporting a very worthwhile charity.
From the drop down menu, you will be able to purchase a bag of BLEND 47 with the added option of making a donation to our chosen charity.
Donations start from just £1 for 250g and all money donated will go directly to the charity.
Simply select how much coffee you would like and how much you would like to donate from the drop down menu.
Every donation helps and is always greatly received!
We are kicking off this initiative by supporting Sharewear, a Nottingham based Charity who are celebrating their 10th anniversary.
Information about the amazing work they do can be seen below -
Nottingham based Sharewear provide free of charge clothing choices to people in economic difficulty across the East Midlands and surrounding areas.
They do this through a combination of on-site referrals to their Nottingham centre, and bulk outreach orders to a range of organisations locally whose own service users need access to clothing. This enables them to support an average of over 2000 people per month.
Their tiny team of employees plus 30 volunteers supported their 100,000th person in January 2024 -- all on a shoestring budget!
With 72% of households struggling to afford the essentials, Sharewear has become a lifeline for people who can't afford the cost of clothing for themselves or their families -- helping people to have the right clothes to get into work, go to school and do P.E. or to improve their mental and physical health by being able to attend free of charge activity and exercise -- to name just a few of the impacts of their work.
At the same time they're saving 6 tonnes of clothing from landfill per month, of the 10,000 items of clothing that go into UK landfill every five minutes!!
This is what the Guild of fine foods had to say about Blend 47,
"Clean, bright, easy-drinking and balanced. Chocolatey with a pleasant, light, juicy-fruit finish. Likely to be a crowd-pleaser, in the best possible sense."
