The Allegra Foundation, a registered charity based in London, was founded in 2011 by Allegra Group CEO Jeffrey Young.
With strong roots in the coffee industry, the Allegra Foundation established Project Waterfall to positively impact the lives of people in coffee growing communities by increasing access to clean drinking water and sanitation.
Since 2011, Project Waterfall has raised over £800,000 and delivered clean drinking water to over 27,000 people in countries including Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Kenya and Uganda.
The Allegra Foundation were looking for collection boxes to send out to a large number of retailers spread across the country. The retailers were holding coffee mornings in support of Project Waterfall and the charity needed to give them a means to collect the funds they raised.
“We send the retailers fundraising packs containing an array of promotional materials and were looking for money boxes that could also be included and fit within the packs.”
On seeing that our pyramid collection boxes were supplied flat and could be assembled with minimum effort, the Allegra Foundation found just what they were looking for.
“The ‘flat pack’ nature of the collection boxes made them space effective in our kit, and it’s really helpful when distributing them.”
The pyramids were printed with their bespoke design and mailed out to recipients up and down the UK.
“The pyramid design is eye-catching and works really well as a till-point visual for our supporting retailers. We really like the fact we were able to customise our own design which was printed on the pyramid.
Our retailers are always requesting extra collection boxes for other sites as they look fantastic at point of sale.”
The UK Coffee Week and pyramid collection collection boxes were a great success and continue to run and raise funds.
“The collection boxes are great value for money; they are sturdy and last for a good amount of time once assembled. We have been using this design for the past 3 years, with no intent to alter this any time soon!”
