Northern Ireland’s leading autism charity, Autism NI, is asking businesses to get their teams together this December and host a ‘Big Christmas Cuppa’ coffee morning to help raise money for local autism services in Northern Ireland and be in with a chance to win up to £2,000 worth of coffee equipment from Bailies Coffee Roasters.

Autism NI Corporate Fundraising Manager Sorcha Mathews said: “Taking part in the ‘Big Christmas Cuppa’ is a great opportunity for work colleagues to put the kettle on and get together during their coffee break to raise money for a good cause. The top fundraiser will win up to £2,000 worth of coffee equipment from Bailies Coffee Roasters, which is such an amazing prize.

As Christmas can be a challenging time for our families, we need additional support during this time of the year to deliver our much-needed services. We are urging businesses to sign up and support our local autism community this Christmas. Any donation received big or small will make a difference to the services we provide across Northern Ireland.”

Mark Gordon of Bailies Coffee Roaster said: “We are thrilled to be able to work with Autism NI this year to support their ‘Big Christmas Cuppa Campaign’ to help raise awareness and support the array of projects and extensive work they do in order to help build a fully inclusive society in which every one of every ability can be seen, heard and valued.”

To sign up to Autism NI’s Big Christmas Cuppa, please visit or call 028 9040 1729 (option 3). Each fundraiser will receive a free fundraising pack to host a coffee morning this December.
