Hummingbird Coffee Donates $10,000 to The Court Theatre

Hummingbird Coffee has donated $10,000 to The Court Theatre through sales of a special coffee blend created especially as part of the Re:Start project. The boutique roaster, who constructed a café in the central city in late October, is selling the "Re:Start" blend through cafés and supermarkets throughout the country, with 30c from each pack sold donated towards The Court's fundraising efforts. To date, over 30,000 units have been sold nationwide.

General Manager of Hummingbird Coffee Nick Cowper says "We came up with this concept three weeks before opening in Cashel Mall and saw the opportunity to use our national distribution to help a Christchurch cause. I grew up going to the Court and I know that a lot of the Hummingbird staff have also: we believe that it's vital to Christchurch to keep The Court going and to help this happen."

Artistic Director of The Court Theatre Ross Gumbley says "This support from Hummingbird is very much appreciated and, on behalf of us all and our grateful audience, we'd like to say 'thanks a latté'".
