Cafe2U Celebrations



 

Congratulations to Saul Heiser, pictured here with Gary, who in the chill of January 2015 was presented with a bottle of Champagne and title Cafe2U Bristol North Customer of the Year 2014!

 

 

Congratulations to Lin Sams from Virgin Media the winner of the Grand Prize Draw. Lin wins one item from every product line sold on the van.

 

Lin said ' Cafe2U is my favourite sight, sound and smell in the morning, my day starts with the best coffee served by two of my favourite people Rachel and Gary, this is a wonderful prize to win and I shall enjoy working my way through the list, but also supporting a worthwhile cause The Brandon Trust.'

 

Gary and Rachel would like to thank Tom Acland, MD and all the Management Team at Cafe2U for awarding our business the coveted title Franchise Partner of the Year 2010. The prize of a trip for two to America became a luxury trip for us and our two boys to New York. We all had an amazing three days. Really, Thank you so much!



Cafe2U Bristol North Community Links

In 2015 Gary and Rachel will be enjoying their fifth year at Bradley Stoke Community Festival:

“The festival is held just a stones throw from our house and we love to delight friends and neighbours with great coffee – iced coffee, frappes and milkshakes if the weather is kind!   We usually get the chance to show some of our daily customers how we look out of hours and we get a ringside view of all the action!”

Bradley Stoke Festival 2014


During 2014 Rachel and Gary have continued to support and promote the work of local charity Brandon Trust.


This amount of £236.94 was raised in one year by the generous customers who deposit small change into the collection triangle on the van.  Also, some of Gary and Rachel’s brave customers donated £1 in return for the chance to make their own coffee, during their fifth anniversary celebrations in June 2014!

Brandon Trust is a Bristol-based charity that exists to improve lifestyles and deliver greater independence to people with learning disabilities. Visit their website at www.brandontrust.org to read the empowering stories of some of the people they support and to learn more about their services.

 

Cafe2U at Events

Throughout 2014 Rachel and Gary enjoyed serving coffee at a variety of events. Cafe2U's unique service is perfect for any occasion and Rachel and Gary are delighted their service has helped support the fund raising efforts of Cancer Research UK, donating over £700 themselves as a result.

In 2014 all the events attended by Gary and Rachel were repeat events.

“Our van is often recognised from previous years events and people often comment that the thought of a treat at the end is their motivation to get to the finish line! ” We love when people remember our service and think of it as a treat!”

In 2015 Gary and Rachel continue to support the fund raising efforts of Cancer Research UK attending the Race for Life season of events throughout the South West.  They will also be at the start and finish line of running and biking events and even the town of Tetbury’s very own Wacky Races! 



Tetbury Wacky Races

  

Stand Up To Cancer 2014

Twilight Race For Life

The Cafe2U event experience is particularly well received in Tetbury.  Summer show organiser Ken White gave some great feedback after Gary and Rachel’s first event in Tetbury...

"We would be happy to have you back next year as lots of people commented on the quality of your service....I would be happy to pass on your details to any others in town who organise functions."

Happily Ken was true to his word and Rachel and Gary kick off their event season again in 2015 with Tetbury Wacky races and will again be enjoying the summer show in August.  “We are always made to feel very welcome by the community in Tetbury and we are looking forward to another vintage year!”

To book Rachel and Gary for an event, please get in touch with dates as soon as possible.
