On Tuesday Coffee Box officially joined the interntational ‘Suspended Coffee’ movement when Mayor of Hastings, Cllr Bruce Dowling, purchased the first coffee here for someone in need.
Coffee Box is the first place in Hastings to sign up to the ‘Suspended Coffee’ movement, which began in Naples many years ago and has spread to hundreds of coffee shops around the world.
Mayor Dowling, who officially launched the scheme, said: “I am very pleased to have bought the first ‘suspended’ coffee. I hope that visitors to Coffee Box will follow my lead and make many ‘suspended’ donations to this very worthwhile cause.”
Laura Grove, Coffee Box manager, said: “The idea behind ‘Suspended Coffee’ is very straight-forward – customers simply buy a coffee or anything from our menu and ask for it to be ‘suspended’ for someone in need. When someone who can’t afford a coffee or a sandwich comes in and asks if we have any suspended items available, we will give them what other customers have bought for them.
“The concept of ‘Suspended Coffee’ fits very naturally with our ethos of wanting to invest our profits for the good of the local community.”
