UK Coffee Week – 2022 Monday, October 10th-16th.

UK Coffee Week is a nationwide fundraising campaign for Project Waterfall, bringing clean drinking water to coffee-growing communities. Thousands of coffee shops, roasters and individuals across the country take part every year.

For one spectacular week every year, the coffee industry and its customers come together to celebrate all things coffee while raising funds for the people who make our love of coffee possible. 

Hospitality businesses of all shapes and sizes fundraise by donating from every cup or bag of coffee sold, or by running events and competitions. 

Whether you serve, sell, sip, or roast our favourite bean, you can participate in UK Coffee Week and support coffee-growing communities. 

Since 2011, the UK Coffee Week community has raised over £800,000 for Project Waterfall, reaching over 45,000 people with clean drinking water, sanitation and education.  

In 2021, funds raised during the campaign supported UK Coffee Week’s current project in the Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia which will change over 10,000 lives.

100% of the money you raise during UK Coffee Week support Project Waterfall’s work to bring clean drinking water, sanitation and education to coffee-growing communities.  

How do they manage that? It’s thanks to the incredible support of their partners who fund the running costs of the campaign, allowing Project Waterfall to receive every penny raised. 

Join the UK Coffee Week community of coffee shops, roasters, retailers and coffee lovers who unite for one week every year to raise funds for Project Waterfall and give back to coffee-growing communities.

UK COFFEE WEEK 16th-22nd APRIL 2018…

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.
