200 Degrees becomes FITC’s Community Partner

Notts County FC Football in the Community (FITC) is delighted to announce 200 Degrees Coffee Roasters as its Community Partner.

The 200 Degrees roast house, which is based on Meadow Lane, was first set up as a coffee wholesaler back in 2012.

The company has grown rapidly since with new openings of its two coffee shops in Nottingham – Flying Horse Walk and Carrington Street – as well as other stores across the country, including Birmingham, Leeds, Leicester and Cardiff.

They supply coffee to hundreds of eateries, pubs and offices and offer a subscription coffee service through their website. The 200 Degrees Barista School, based at the Flying Horse Walk store, is also a popular hit for those wanting to learn more about coffee and different methods of making it. 

The roasters have unofficially supported FITC for 2 years now, mainly at events such as CEO Sleepout where they provided drinks to keep everyone warm throughout the night.

Now that the partnership is confirmed, discussions are on-going as to how both organisations can work together and inspire other groups and businesses to join in and support FITC’s charitable work in the local community.

Tim Moss, Roast House Manager, said: “We initially started working with FITC because of the work they do in schools, which we feel is really valuable. I think you’d be surprised how many people don’t have that support the child needs whether it’s through exercise, or supporting them with their reading, or quite simply being brilliant role-models for them.”

He added: “Now that we’ve been working with FITC on more events, we realise how much more they do and how happy we are to be part of that. Plus, I think It’s the locality aspect and the support in the community that we can help with the most.  We all talk to a lot of people in the local area, FITC do it through the work it delivers in schools and other projects, we do it from the people we meet in day-to-day activities so in terms of networking, we’re helping to spread each other’s message across week in, week out.”

James Bromley, Events and Partnership Executive, commented: “Having 200 Degrees Roast House on board is great as they are one of the leading speciality coffee chains in the country and their commitment to supporting the local community links in perfectly with the projects we run throughout the City.

 “We are looking forward to working with them again at the future events such as the CEO Sleepout in October 2018 and we’ll be discussing other ways this partnership could develop to make a real impact for some of the most vulnerable people throughout Nottinghamshire. Tim has also shown an interest in running in the ASDA 10k in Nottingham on behalf of the charity which would be great,” he said.
