As a company as a whole, we want to get involved in more charity work. Helping the local community and charities close to our hearts. In this coming year, we will be releasing several drinks in aid of different charities chosen by our staff members. The first launch being in aid of the Marie Curie Hospice in Edinburgh. This charity was chosen by CJ from our Edinburgh store as they provided help and support throughout and after her Grandad's battle with Cancer. This year, the hospice will cost over £5.2m to run. Only one third of these costs are funded by the NHS and the remainder is funded by the generosity of local supporters and businesses.
CJ has created a boba tea to sell in both of our stores this year, with all profits and donations going to the Marie Curie Hospice in Edinburgh. The tea is mango and orange flavoured, with mango and lychee boba, layered with glitter to replicate the Marie Curie brand colours. The drink will be sold in 2 sizes, the larger of the two has one of the famous daffodil pin badges attached to the cup for you to keep and wear to show your continued support.
We are having a massive launch day on Friday the 22nd of March in our Edinburgh store, 7 East Market Street. It would be great if you all could come along to show some support. There will be cakes, prizes and lots of surprises, so make sure to mark the date in your diary!
