What If We Put All Our Small Change In The Same Jar?

angeloAs many of our customers are aware, Coinadrink supports a charity called ‘Just Small Change.’ We have a simple formula: every time somebody buys a bottle of water from one of our bottled water coolers, we donate a percentage. So far we’ve raised £750.

It’s not much, is it? In fact, it’s just small change…

However, as anyone who’s ever collected coins in a jar will know, over time, that ‘small change’ can turn into a substantial sum of money and with that in mind, we thought you might be interested to find out how that money is being used.

Our Survey Said:

Last November, we invited customers to complete a Customer Care Survey. Here’s what we discovered…

It’s always been our philosophy as a company to take a regular, critical look at ourselves and our business and there’s no better way to do this than to ask the people who know us best – our customers – exactly what they think of us.

You’ve probably never heard of Leigh’s Syndrome.  It’s a rare inherited neurometabolic disorder, which affects the central nervous system.

Olivia is sixteen years old and if you click on the ‘Leigh’s syndrome’ link above, you’ll get some idea of what she has to live with; but be warned: it’s not, in any sense, an easy read just as hers is not, in any sense, an easy life…

Olivia loves her iPad 🙂

It’s heartbreaking, but the irrefutable fact is that hers is a ‘life limiting condition’; it means she’s a semi – permanent resident at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. You wouldn’t choose it as a venue for your 16th birthday party, but that’s what circumstances dictated: Olivia needs constant care and supervision.

Macmillan coffee morning is soon to be here again!

It is tragically estimated that by 2020, over one in two people will suffer from cancer at some point in their lives. Macmillan has been committed to providing care and attention to those diagnosed with cancer for years and years, so that nobody has to deal with it alone.
