200 Degrees annual charity day, Swap Shop, returns

Coffee lovers will be able to swap a tube of toothpaste for a free flat white on Tuesday 5th December when independent coffee shop chain 200 Degrees hosts their annual charity day, Swap Shop.

In each of the company’s 21 shops across the UK, customers will be able to bring in and donate unused and unopened hygiene products, and get a free coffee in return.

Swap Shop is an initiative that 200 Degrees have run for the past two years, but this year each shop team has chosen to directly support a charity in their locality. With hygiene poverty still a massive issue across the country due to the cost of living crisis, customers will be able have make a difference for people in their community, with products to be distributed to those in need in partnership via local charities.

In Lincoln, the 200 Degrees Shop on Sincil Street will be supporting the Lincoln Food Bank. And in Nottingham, the four 200 Degrees shops will be each be supporting a different charity: Emmanuel House, Juno Women’s Aid, The Friary and Central Women’s Aid. Each shop across the 200 Degrees estate, from Cardiff to Cannock, to Manchester and Liverpool will also be supporting a charity in their local area. The Head Office team, based on Meadow Lane in Nottingham, will be bringing in their own items to donate to their core charity partner, Switch Up.

200 Degrees Managing Director Stephen Fern said: “Supporting the local community is one of the core values of 200 Degrees and we adhere to those beliefs all year round, but we know charities struggle particularly at Christmas.

“We have the ability to make a difference across a large part of the UK now we have 21 shops, and the teams have been eager to donate items to charities they know will reach local people. Giving away free coffees to those who donate is a great way to raise awareness and get those donations flooding in.”
