We were honoured to see so many of our suppliers, customers and colleagues in the coffee world join us for the evening including, Oliver’s Ice Cream, Middlecombe Nursery, White’s Botanicals, Astrum Accountants, Chartley Coffee, and many more. There was even support from top children’s entertainers Sharky & George and members of our Royal Navy.
After the thunder subsided and a quick espresso martini to calm the nerves, speeches were made by our Rory from Bristol Twenty and Catherine from Above & Beyond. Our speeches complimented each other well and evoked a good laugh and a few teary eyes throughout the room. We were all overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity, especially one young girl and her father who kindly donated £100 on the evening. We are also very thankful to the Radnor Rooms for donating the space for the event and White Botanicals and Mr Wolfs for supplying the food and drink.
After our speeches, we were all treated to the most wonderful coffee themed food, served up by the fantastic staff at the Radnor Rooms. We tucked in to a selection of sticky BBQ ribs rubbed with coffee and pepper; espresso brined and sea salted chicken thighs; cajun coffee vegan shrimp with apricot and courgette salad, served with a blue cheese and citrus espresso dressing. This was all rounded off with the most delicious 2 tier cappuccino cake, made with 21TEN coffee.
The evening was a roaring success and raised just shy of £1000 which will go straight to the incredible work Above & Beyond do for our hospitals. We couldn’t be prouder of our partnership and hope that our customers will choose our new 21TEN blend as their coffee offering to help support such a fantastic cause.
