Wakefield’s independent quality coffee shop, Caffe Noor, has donated £5000 to Wakefield District Council to help tackle poverty in the area. 

The cafe, which is located in Trinity Walk, has made a commitment to supporting local social funding and will split it’s profits 50/50 each month with half of the money going toward funding local projects in the area, and the other half toward opening another coffee shop in a new city.

This month’s share of profits has gone to Wakefield Council in a bid to tackle local poverty.

The donation was presented on Friday to Wakefield Councillor, Denise Jeffrey by group CEO, Rob Campbell.

Rob said, “On behalf of Caffe Noor I took pleasure in being able to hand over the second cheque for £5ooo.oo to Wakefield Council. We are so pleased that we can help in their bid to tackle local poverty.”

Mike Flett, Chairman of Trustees of the Ziya Foundation said, “We’re absolutely delighted at what Caffe Noor has done for this charity, and the generosity of this donation.”

Caffe Noors’ philanthropic business plan has led to appraisal from Wakefield Mayor, Councillor Tracey Austin, who recently visited the store to show her personal gratitude and present a recognition award for their commitment to helping the local area.

Caffe Noor’s, ‘coffee with a conscience’ philosophy is what sets them apart from other local businesses as their monthly donations continue to support the city of Wakefield.
