UK Coffee Week is 16th-22nd April 2108 and is a nationwide celebration of coffee that also raises funds for coffee growing communities.
100% of donations received from UK Coffee Week will go to Project Waterfall, an initiative dedicated to bringing clean water facilities to coffee growing communities.
Coffee is one of the largest and most powerful industries in the world. Over 500 billion cups of coffee are consumed globally each year, and every one of those cups is an opportunity to make a difference.
They believe the coffee industry and coffee drinkers have the power to make a real and positive impact on the communities that grow our coffee.
Water is intrinsically linked with the creation of a perfect cup of coffee. From the 140l of water it takes to produce a single cup of coffee to creation of the final cup, water is integral to the creation of a perfect cup of coffee.
Water is also integral to the lives of the farmers who grow our coffee. 663 million people around the world do not have access to safe, clean water.
Access to clean water can break the cycle of poverty. Clean water not only improves the health and well-being of communities facing the global water crisis; it also means great access to education, income and ultimately a better life.
Taking part in UK Coffee Week is easy. Each participating store (find out more on UK Coffee Week website) can fundraise in many different ways; from donating 5p from every coffee sold during the week to hosting a creative workshop in store, there are unlimited possibilities for unique fundraising.
They are gearing up for our 2018 campaign, which will run 16-22 April! You can help Project Waterfall by signing up your coffee shop, pub, school or restaurant to take part in UK Coffee Week for 2018.
They have a whole page of fundraising ideas from hosting a raffle to a coffee cocktail night. Sign up now and get your UK Coffee Week marketing materials to help support this worthy charity.
