Let’s raise a mug to some warming charity news
Nottingham’s Bird & Blend Tea Co. store have announced that Broxtowe Women’s Project (BWP) will be their ‘Store Chari-TEA of the Year’ for 2023.
BWP visited Bird & Blend’s Victoria Street store this January to meet with the team and choose their ‘ChariTEA’ tea blend. All of the profits of sales from the Chari-TEA blend in Nottingham will go directly to BWP – supporting their work enabling women to live independent lives free from Domestic Abuse.
BWP’s CEO, Colette Byrne, said: “We connected with the wonderful team at Bird & Blend Tea back in November when we reached out to them to support with an event; they were so welcoming and generously supported us.
“After learning more about the work that we do in raising awareness and supporting women and families who have experience Domestic Abuse, they chose BWP through their fantastic ‘ChariTEA of the Year’ initiative, and we’re absolutely delighted, not just to be selected and supported in this way but for the beginning of what we’re sure will be a very special partnership.”
Rob Holdroyd, Trainee Store Manager from Bird & Blend Tea Co Nottingham, said: “Bird & Blend is on a mission to spread happiness & reimagine tea. We’re passionate about supporting causes that are close to our hearts and that help the people and the environment around us.
“BWP are a fantastic example of charities we love to support. They’re small, they’re local and they’ll use every penny we raise from the sale of our ‘ChariTEA’ this year to make an incredible difference.”
As well as tea sales, BWP and Bird & Blend Tea Co will work together on fundraising and community initiatives, such as bringing people together for a cuppa.
