Join Us in a Celebration of UK Coffee Week

Today marks the start of UK Coffee Week - that week of the year when the coffee industry and its customers unite to celebrate their love of coffee, and at the same time raise funds for the many people involved in its production. This year, UK Coffee Week runs from Monday 19th to Sunday 25th October; the focus of the event being Project Waterfall, the charity of choice for the coffee industry.

Now in its 10th year, UK Coffee Week is dedicated to raising money to help Project Waterfall achieve its goal of providing sustainable, clean water, sanitation, hygiene projects and education to thousands of coffee growing communities around the world. For example, since 2011, Project Waterfall has delivered clean drinking water to more than 34,000 people in major coffee growing countries. And today, it needs our help more than ever because of the impact COVID-19 has had on coffee-growing communities.

Coffee-Direct is delighted to be taking part in this spectacular event, and you too can get involved and give your support to this worthwhile cause. We are asking people to donate the price of a cup of coffee to Project Waterfall, between 19 - 25 October 2020. Every penny raised will go towards ending the water crisis, and helping the millions of people around the world whose livelihoods depend on coffee production.

If you feel you’d like to take part, it couldn’t be easier:

Text ‘COFFEE’ to 70331 to donate £3.00 any day this week.
