The Bridge To Hope Coffee

The Bridge to Hope Coffee is a Community Interest Company (CIC) where all the profit goes to The Bridge, Homelessness to Hope Charity.

We have two fully electric coffee wagons are called Eric and Ernie - a converted ice cream carvan and milk float, respectively - and can be located at any accessible sites around Leicester and our friendly team of expert ‘Bridgistas’ will serve your guests with ethically-sourced, high quality coffees, teas, hot chocolates and soft drinks, as well a selection of tasty treats.

We can set Ernie up at pretty much every type of event, indoor or outdoor, at corporate hospitality, press days and product launches, film and TV work, exhibitions, private functions, weddings, sports tournaments, markets, fetes and festivals, to name just a few.

Our focus is always on your guests and it doesn’t take long for us to become the social hub of any event. It’s then over to your team to network in a more natural and organic manner over a cup of liquid gold.

Ernie is eco friendly, running on electricity and gas. He can cleanly be parked inside with no nasty generator emissions. With him we provide all the stock, the serving of the refreshments and the clearing up by one or more of our friendly and engaging Bridgistas.  


Our second vehicle is a converted Ice cream trailer which was originally owned by Eric and Italian ice cream maker who lived in Leicester. Eric was the only fitting name for him! In great condition we sent him up to Newcastle for his transformation. He came back glistening with a Fraccino coffee machine, a fridge and a freezer meaning we could also offer ice creams and milk shakes to our customers.

Being bright and blue certainly gets him noticed at events, his original windows keep that vintage theme which is so in right now and the fact that his profits go to a charity are great reasons to have him at your event.

He offers a selection of dairy and non dairy ice cream & milkshake flavours. Want an Eric blue (bubblegum), rum & raisin for your pirate event, banana split or whatever we can find to match you event this can be done.

All our cups, ice cream tubs and milkshake containers can be designed to incorporate you theme or log, menus and decor also can be styled to fit.
