February 17, 2021
Wednesday 17th February 2021 is “Random Act of Kindness Day” and to mark the occasion, Café incredABLE at South Lake is joining the “Suspended Coffee Movement”. Re-opening Friday, 26 February at 9am for weekend takeaway service, Café incredABLE will be offering suspended coffees in Craigavon’s state-of-the-art South Lake Leisure Centre.
What is a suspended coffee? It is simply a coffee bought to a deserving person by a kind stranger. This act of charity is believed to originate from the caffé sospeso [suspended coffee in Italian] tradition of Naples where a customer who had experienced good fortune would pay for two coffees, but drink only one, leaving the second one behind as an act of kindness for someone unable to afford a hot drink.
To participate, all you have to do is let the Café incredABLE team know at the till that you would like to buy a suspended coffee. Then, if you wish, leave a message of kindness on their noticeboard to brighten up someone’s day. To receive, just check at the till if there’s a suspended coffee available. You don’t have to explain why you would like it. Then, along with your hot drink, choose a random message of kindness and enjoy your day! Watch this space! There will be more updates on this very special project very soon!
Café incredABLE are continuing to service a contract with the NHS to provide refreshments to staff administering COVID-19 vaccinations and are delighted to see so many people availing of this free service at South Lake Leisure Centre (If you are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, you can book it here: https://covid-19.hscni.net/get-vaccinated/
Café incredABLE encourage all their customers to adhere to Government guidance and wear face coverings when using the café, as this keeps both their staff and all customers safe. Please follow the signage highlighting the ‘Entrance’ and ‘Exit’ points of the café, use the hand sanitizer provided and the contactless payment facility where possible.
Remember the social distancing guidelines and keep two metres apart from both customers in front of and behind you in the queue. If the café is very busy, please consider returning at a quieter time when you can be given 100% attention by the team.
The South Lake Leisure Centre facilities are not yet open to the public [aside from clients attending
