Compassionate Inverclyde are working in partnership with the Broomhill Hub Café on a new Project to offer a Caring Cuppa to anyone who needs it.
The idea is that people can buy a cup of coffee for a stranger, because a small act of kindness can change a life. You never know what another person is truly going through, so even an act of kindness as small as buying a cup of coffee for a stranger could serve to seriously brighten their day, help combat feelings of isolation and let them see that others care.
Suspended coffee, or caffe sospeso, is a tradition that comes from Naples, Italy, and dates to at least the turn of the 20th century. When customers buy coffee, they also pay in advance for a cup to be given to somebody else -- usually someone who otherwise couldn't afford it. Customers can pay £2 to donate a Caring Cuppa at the Cafe. Anyone who wants a receive a Cuppa can pick up a card in the Cafe to use to purchase a Cuppa.
