Weta Coffee raised $3000 yesterday for the victims of the bushfires in Australia.

Director Mue Bentley offered her gratitude for the initiative, saying the support was overwhelming.

“We are committed to donating all our coffee sales today to help with the Australian firefighting efforts because we want to help a member of our Pacific family in need,” she said.

It was a means for Weta customers and staff to contribute to the cause in a meaningful way, she said.

“We sold 300 coffees today, with our coffee sales coming up to $1700, so we will throw in our food sales from today and top up donation to $3000,” she said.

Mrs Fisher said she was awaiting word from the Australian High Commissioner about the prospects of a local donation link, failing which the money raised would be transferred online to the Country Fire Authority in Australia.

Weta Coffee, located inside Mobil On The Go service station along Victoria Parade, is an award winning coffee roasters and espresso bar which began in Auckland, New Zealand.

Weta, a grab-and-go coffee joint, is also known for its eco-friendly practices.
