London Luton Airport Gets the Coffee on for Kids
A pop-up coffee shop is opening at Luton Airport today with the aim of raising funds for the children's charity When You Wish Upon A Star.
Throughout the day, staff at the airport will be selling Lavazza coffee, other hot drinks and cakes as part of a campaign to raise over £50,000, all of which will be used to fly 50 sick children to Lapland to meet Father Christmas.
The mobile coffee cart, which is operated by The Food Travel Experts SSP and supplied by The Big Coffee Co., will be calling at London Luton as part of a tour of nine of the UK’s leading airports. The tour began at Leeds Bradford on 15 April.
Mark Rainbow, SSP UK chief operating officer, said the coffee cart was bound to be popular with airport passengers. He added: "People flying to and from London Luton Airport on Tuesday will not only be able to enjoy a great cup of coffee, but they will also be raising money for a truly worthwhile cause. With its cheeky Latin charm, our Italian-made Piaggio Ape coffee cart is bound to put a smile on the faces of passengers at the Airport."
Rupert Lawrie, commercial director, London Luton Airport said: "It is a pleasure to be able to support this event and a charity that makes a real difference to the lives of children and their families. The Piaggio Ape in the Airport terminal, I am sure will draw the attention of passengers and staff alike. We look forward to a successful day which, as well as adding to the £50,000 target, will raise awareness of such a great charity."
When You Wish Upon A Star is a charity founded to grant the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening illnesses and since its inception has granted over 15,000 wishes. A highlight of the charity’s year comes each December, when it charters four planes to take up to 400 children to Lapland.
