Liverpool coffee shop pours out the love for Eurovision and Ukraine

Bold Street Coffee is pouring out the love for Eurovision with support and a host of fund-raising ideas for people and charities in Ukraine.

Among other things the popular coffee shop, which now has two venues in the city – Bold Street and The Plaza in Old Hall Street – is selling limited edition t-shirts and inviting customers to make donations with every purchase.

Phoebe Webb, marketing manager for GSG Hospitality which owns BSC, says: “Since it was announced that Liverpool would host Eurovision, we’ve always known we’ve wanted to get involved in any way possible. 

“Through our limited-edition T-shirts, optional donation and art trail we hope to both support the exciting opportunities created by Eurovision in Liverpool and help support those affected in Ukraine.

“We’d love to raise as much money as we can for Ukraine over the Eurovision week.”

The T-shirts which have been designed by its in-house team (@social_bandits) feature the Eurovision logo with coffee pouring from the blue and yellow heart into a cup, and the words ‘we stand with Ukraine’ on the back, and a smaller logo echoing the slogan on the front.

They’re available from both Liverpool venues and cost £15, with £5 from every sale going to Ukrainian charities.

It’s also asking customers to donate £1 on every order made through Peazi ( which provides QR code ordering systems for hospitality) throughout Eurovision Week – which GSG is also doing at Duke Street Market – which will go to Peazi’s nominated charity, Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

And Phoebe adds: “We’re also offering 10% off at Bold Street Coffee and our new restaurant NORD in The Plaza, for all workers of Eurovision, both staff and volunteers.”

Bold Street Coffee is also one of the venues on the ‘Home’ trails exhibition that can be seen throughout the city region.

An app, designed by the University of Liverpool team, leads people to independent spaces to see Home-themed Ukrainian photography collections in five trails with themes of Land, Making, Liberty, Resistance, and Settings.

There are 25 places on the trails including cafes, shops, museums and galleries, and each place will have an artwork by a contemporary Ukrainian photographer and a postcard for sale, the profit from which will go to the Hospitallers medical group, an organisation focusing on sourcing and delivering medical supplies for paramedics who save lives in Ukraine.

And everyone who does the trail is invited to collect the postcards and upload their own poem, lyric or letter in response.

Phoebe says: “We’ve only started the initiative in the past couple of days and the response so far has been hugely positive!”
