SPORTING filmmakers and photographers, Pace Brothers, has combined its passion for fieldsports and conservation with a coffee creation that will aid the work of the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT).
One pound from every sale of The MACNAB coffee will go towards the vital research work GWCT carries out.
Director of photography for Pace Productions, Byron Pace, explains the idea behind the launch.
He said: “The MACNAB has allowed us to combine a great love of coffee, hunting and fishing into a product that gives back. We had immediate buy in from the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, an organisation doing invaluable work for wildlife and our understanding. For us this is key, and has to be at the core of any future which includes hunting and fishing.
“The wildlife has to come first. This is just our small way of helping make sure this happens, and gives people who enjoy hunting and fishing a chance to support this work while also getting something back.”
Andrew Gilruth, who is director of communications at GWCT, believes the new coffee is a fantastic idea.
“We were delighted to be offered the chance to work with Pace on this exciting new range of coffee. Its support is greatly appreciated and will help to deliver a better working conservation in the UK.”
The MACNAB - a Romano blend of ground coffee from Ethiopia, Brazil and Vietnam - costs £7.
