WELLINGTON'S Beyond Barbed Wire group will receive a boost this May after finalising a partnership with Sydney-based boutique coffee shop Fat Poppy Coffee.
Beyond Barbed Wire, a Barnardos program that works to support imprisoned and recently released mothers, will receive five dollars from every kilo of the 'Mayde for Mums' coffee blend that Fat Poppy Coffee sells across the month of May.
Shiree Talbot, Barnardos' Beyond Barbed Wire program manager, was grateful for Fat Poppy Coffee's assistance.
"We are so thrilled that Fat Poppy Coffee believes in our program and the difference that it makes for mothers and children in our community," Ms Talbot said.
"So often mothers have supported each other over a cup of coffee. With this new partnership, a simple cup of coffee will change the lives of many more women and give them a future."
The partnership will also supply the 'Three Wise Women' coffee cart.
