Our Mission for Muscles

We have some exciting news to share with you all!

 

We have become official partners with Muscular Dystrophy UK, they are our chosen charity for 2018-2019, and together we are aiming to raise £10,000 for the amazing cause.

 

Muscular Dystrophy is a muscle wasting condition which is currently affecting 70,000 children & adults in the UK. The team at MDUK do amazing work which includes funding high quality research, supporting families to get the fastest possible access to emerging treatments, ensuring everyone has the specialist NHS care they need close to home and supporting people to live as independently as possible.

 

MDUK has a very special part in our SOHO hearts. We were originally approached by a lovely lady called Lesley, she told us her story about her grandson who is affected by a form of Muscular Dystrophy, Duchenne. It was her story, her dedication and all round loveliness that hit us hard and made us all determined to raise as much money as we can for the amazing cause.

 

We have recently launched our company Just Giving page  which will show how much we have raised so far, from individual fundraising, in store events & till point donations.

 

We already have some amazing members of our team taking part in some very challenging events. Our Property & Acquisitions Manager, Guy has bravely signed up for an Iron Man Triathlon in Nice on June 24th, you can read his story & support him here.

 

We also have a very lovely group taking on the Cardiff Half Marathon, including our Head of Store Development - Fiona, Operations Director - Pete, HR & Recruitment Manager - Kath, Our Cabot Circus Store Manager - Shelley, and our Cabot Circus Store Supervisor – Ellie. Find out more & support them here.

 

The £10,000 we aiming to raise will enable 6 children who are affected by a muscle wasting condition to have a powered wheelchair, so are extremeley determined to hit our target!

2017 So-Ho far!

Well well well, has 2017 been a busy year for us, and it’s only May! We are onto new store number 3, with many more coming up within the next few weeks, so we hope you are as excited as we are!

 

Throwing it back to 13th February, where we opened a new store in our hometown of Cheltenham. This store is located in an amazing spot at the Cheltenham Brewery Quarter, and was the first store to welcome our brand new hot food counter, which includes our brand new hot grain pots, mmm!

 

Then came the Bullring store, which opened on Sunday 30th April. This amazing store is located within Debenhams, and is the first and only store that offers our brand new Afternoon Tea. Shopping trips are now complete with our Tea for Two, which includes your choice of sandwiches, salted caramel pecan brownie, rainbow cake, two scones with jam & cream and fresh strawberries – and looks beautiful, if we do say so ourselves!

 

And then on Monday 8th May we added another store to our family, when we opened our beautiful store at Baker Street, London. This huge store is surrounded with windows so our SOHO lights can be seen from all around. The store is packed full with our freshly made lunch options, hot food counter and all the sweet treats and cakes to tempt you with!

 

The best of luck to all of our new stores, and our amazing store teams who are all working exceptionally hard!

 

And a huge thank you to everyone involved in this exciting journey that we are on, this is just the beginning of our London store opening sprint, so watch this space for many more, or follow our progress across our social media platforms. (@SOHO_Coffee_Co)
