This month Coinadrink have chosen a local charity to be the main focus of our fund-raising efforts. Promise Dreams is a national registered children’s charity, based in Wolverhampton. It was launched in 2001 to make dreams reality for seriously and terminally ill children, and their families, across the UK. Over the 12 years that the charity has been in existence more than 1,150 very special children have seen their dreams come true.

Paper cups have become increasingly popular in
recent years as a result of their extensive use by
Starbucks and Costa, along with most fast food
outlets. The consumer is therefore very familiar
with using paper packaging and perceives the
value of a beverage in a paper cup to be higher.
Despite this, plastic cups still dominate in the
vending sector, due to their competitive price
and reliability. The failure rate of plastic cups in
a typical vending machine is almost zero………..
Earlier in the year Coinadrink celebrated its 50th anniversary by hosting a Party Night at the National Motor Cycle Museum. The charity chosen as the beneficiary of the evening was Macmillan Cancer Support. The evening was a great success and the various fund raising activities on the night were very generously supported.
A cheque for £5826.09, the proceeds of the evening, was presented by Roger Williams, Managing Director of Coinadrink to Eloise Davidson who received it on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support. Eloise thanked everybody at Coinadrink for the magnificent amount they had raised. She went on to say ‘Macmillan together with charities generally had suffered a slowdown in donations during the recession so this cheque was very welcome’.
Roger Williams commented that ‘the company was very appreciative of the work Macmillan Cancer Support carried out. The families of some Coinadrink staff had been very grateful for the support they had received, at some challenging times in their family lives, from the Macmillan nurses. Roger Williams went on to say ‘he was pleased that the evening had raised a significant amount of money to help them carry on with their good work’.
With the summer weather expected to be making a grand appearance over the next few weeks, excitement levels are rising and its clear cold drinks will be on the agenda to make us enjoy the temperature just that bit more.
Coinadrink offer a wide range of soft drinks – all the famous brands – but also a good selection of lesser known varieties, so you can be sure there is something to suit everyone’s taste.
Leading food and drinks manufacture Aimia foods has upgraded and enhanced its already successful Galaxy out of home hot chocolate products, and claims that Galaxy can grow sales versus generic, non-branded products by as much as 30%. This comes after Galaxy Hot Chocolate Vending and Galaxy Hot Chocolate Table Top have been a lot more popular and have been brought far more closely in line with the confectionery brand values.
With the area bordering on another hot period, we thought it would be amongst your best interests to go through with you the types of water coolers that we offer. There are many different types of water coolers available, ranging from the traditional types with an 18.5 litre bottle of spring water on top, to a plumbed in cooler usually referred to as a point-of-use cooler. Despite the options available to you, one thing your guaranteed with both is pure, clean and refreshing drink water. Perfect for a hot day.

Here at Coinadrink, we will begin trying out our new Express Refreshment system in the first quarter of 2013. Not only is this new, but it’s also within our belief that it’s a first for the UK, meaning you won’t find them anywhere else. A lot of time and effort has gone into this project and more information can be found in the next edition of Refreshing Times.
