Liverpool cafes to help raise money during UK Coffee Week this month
2 months ago
Independent coffee shops across Liverpool will come together to raise funds for Project Waterfall, bringing clean drinking water to coffee growing communities.
From 16 – 22 October, Liverpool will be immersed in Project Waterfall’s celebration of all things coffee, for UK Coffee Week.
For one week every year coffee shops, restaurants, roasters and their customers come together to celebrate all things coffee while raising funds for Project Waterfall – a charity working to end the water crisis in coffee-growing communities across the world.
Coffee shop’s taking part include: Moose Coffee Plaza, Bold Street Coffee, 92 Degrees, Ditto Coffee, Espresso Plus and more.
Across Liverpool, a range of activities will unfold, including a £1 donation from each coffee purchase at Moose Coffee and donations from each bag of coffee – keep your eyes out for raffles and bake sales too. To pinpoint your nearest participating coffee shop, visit the UK Coffee Week map.
With over £1 Million raised since 2011, Project Waterfall donations have been used to transform the lives of over 45,000 individuals, providing them with access to clean drinking water, sanitation and education.
This year, 100% of proceeds will support Project Waterfall’s latest initiative in the Berbere district of Ethiopia which is set to reach a further 40,000 people with clean water by 2025.
Rebecca Hodgson, Director of Project Waterfall and UK Coffee Week, said:
“UK Coffee Week is an opportunity for us all to come together and make an impact on the communities that make our livelihoods possible. We’re always blown away by the support from the industry – it’s wonderful to see so many coffee shops coming together in support of such a great cause.
“Serving as Project Waterfall’s flagship fundraising campaign, UK Coffee Week empowers every coffee shop, regardless of size, to create meaningful change, all while fostering team engagement and enjoyment. Official sponsors, Just Milk, Kahlua, Artisan and Fulfil, eagerly stand behind this campaign.”
