Our team members Sophie Stead and Sophie Littlewood have been on a very exciting trip to London this week for the launch event of the Melitta Latticia OT Bean to Cup Coffee machine at London Dine in the Sky.

Courtesy of Melitta and their National Account Manager David Price and Consumer & Trade Marketing Manager Nigel Morrison, a breathtaking experience was had by all with fresh coffee served from the Melitta Latticia OT machine by Melitta’s brand ambassador Celeste Wong. Not to mention 100ft up in the air!

The Melitta Latticia has a new integrated milk system – the Latte Perfection system, any coffee is certain to turn out how you want it. It is very uncomplicated due to intuitive one-touch operation with coloured real image buttons. The double cup mode, and the extra large bean container and water tank ensure plenty of coffee enjoyment. Coffee enjoyment at the push of a button.

EPE Group supports local Charity; Focus4Hope

EPE have teamed up with PriceCo to support local Brighouse based charity Focus4Hope this Christmas! 

Focus4Hope are a local charity that work to support the homeless; the elderly, the vulnerable, refugees and victims of domestic violence. They proudly go above and beyond to support the most vulnerable across West Yorkshire for the last 5 years. Launching their Food Bank at the start of the first lockdown last year they have provided food parcels; prescription pick up services and essentials to 1000’s of isolated and food-insecure individuals across the area.
Thanks to this great Charity over 2000 presents will be sent to children and over 1000 people will eat this Christmas. With a minimum of 500 food parcels being delivered to families who may not otherwise be able to afford a Christmas dinner this year.
Debra Nichol,  Captain of the EPE Company Culture Team asked the staff at EPE to donate food to the Christmas Wish list, and the response was overwhelming.
Sophie Hoyle, Store Manager at PriceCo Brighouse also took presents and crackers to the charity. Sophie comments:
‘I couldn’t imagine waking up Christmas Morning to no presents’
We’re very proud to be supporting such a worthy cause; alongside the presents, PriceCo have also donated £500 towards the Christmas food parcels for those who need it the most.

We hope to continue to make a difference in the community by supporting more charities like this in the future.

EPE raises money for Children in Need 2021

The EPE team have been getting into the fundraising spirit for Children In Need 2021.

To raise money for this worthy cause, we ran an interoffice bake sale where staff brought in their Children in Need themed cakes to be judged in a Bake off style tasting from our resident expert cake tasters; our dynamic in office Mel and Sue duo @Sally Bell & @Tracey Calabricci. The cakes were judged on the following categories Looks, Taste, Effort and Overall flair. It was a tight competition with an independent adjudicator @Charles Middleton called in last minute to help make a final decision.
The winner of our Bake Off competition was Debra Nichol, Customer Service Manager; with Sophie Stead, Personal Assistant to CEO
and Claire Hosany; Key Account Administrator coming in at 2nd and 3rd place.
Post bake off style judging all the bakes were available to be sold in the office for £1 a slice.
The team also took part in a raffle! Tickets were £1 with an opportunity to win a variety of prizes from Christmas gifting to fitness, pan sets and home essentials as well as the chance to win a Philips Airfryer.
The fun didn’t stop there; the team also took part in Dress Down Friday for a kind contribution of £262.58
In total the EPE team raised £356.13 that will go to the Children in Need charity to support disadvantaged children and young people all across the UK.
