Manumit Coffee meets the Queen

Manumit Coffee, the not-for-profit Cardiff-based roaster business that helps survivors of modern slavery rebuild their lives, has been granted an audience with the Queen.

Dai Hankey, from Red Community, Manumit’s sister charity was one of only nine organisations to be granted a special audience with Her Majesty. They joined over 300 organisations that were invited to a special reception “to celebrate the work of local faith and belief groups to promote community cohesion”. 

Hankey presented the Queen with a bag of Manumit Coffee.

“To be invited was very humbling, but to be one of only a handful of guests to be granted a special audience with The Queen and to be able to share with her about the work of Red Community (and also bless her with a bag of Manumit Coffee) was mind-blowing! She listened. She asked questions. She sincerely cared,” he said.

Manumit Coffee Roasters said the Queen was “excited” to hear about the work Manumit and Red community were doing to support survivors of trafficking through employment, befriending projects and sponsorship programmes and awareness raising.

Manumit Coffee Roasters is one of the European Coffee, Tea & Soft Drink Expo Charity Partners  chosen by Quinic Events, the owner of the Expo, for its enlightened and inspirational approach in using coffee to make positive changes to people suffering from modern slavery.
