A1 Coffee and Clic Sargent

July 2014

During July 2014, A1 Coffee teamed up with Clic Sargent, the UK’s leading charity for children with cancer. With immediate effect, we now make a 50p donation for every single box of our own Planet Java coffee that we sell, whether it’s coffee beans or cases of filter coffee.

Planet Java coffee is exclusive to us here at A1 Coffee, and is a range of coffee beans and ground coffee that includes a decaf, several Fairtrade varieties, an organic blend and many more. Of course, our existing customers will know that we take our community responsibilities seriously, and we have always strived to offer recyclable products and Fairtrade goods wherever possible, right across our range.

Clic Sargent is one of the most deserving charities we could possibly have chosen to support and we hope to raise a substantial amount towards their efforts. It’s a cause that is impossible not to have admiration for, and so we decided it was the right thing to do for so many reasons.

Clic Sargent

Today, 10 children and young people in the UK will hear the shocking news that they have cancer. Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for up to three years. Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience and the emotional, practical and financial implications of treatment are intensely challenging for the whole family.

CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. We provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. We are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.

Please help A1 Coffee to support this excellent cause by sharing this article with your friends and colleagues. We will be providing updates throughout the year detailing our progress and we hope to be involved with further initiatives in the very near future. You can follow this on Facebook, Twitter, Google + and of course on our own blog. Our own blog also contains useful articles on how to make coffees and iced drinks, how to look after your coffee equipment, and information about new trends and what customers are looking for.

We’re open to writing articles for our customers on request, so if there is anything in particular you would like us to cover, we’re all ears. Don’t forget to join us on your chosen social networking site (we’re on all of them!) and get access to discount vouchers, special offers and some just plain funny stuff too.

Finally, we’d like to thank you all of our customers who have already given us positive feedback regarding our Clic Sargent campaign, and to thank you for helping us spread the word about their good work. It’s much appreciated.

Thank you for your support.
