A new charity-run coffee and bookshop venture, co-founded by Tossed managing director Vincent Mckevitt, opens today in London’s Shoreditch. Paper & Cup on Calvert Avenue, run by local charity Spitalfields Crypt Trust (SCT), sells a range of hot drinks and food, along with new and second hand books that can be purchased or read on site. Mckevitt provided mentoring, design suggestions, the basis for the business plan, the input at each stage of development, for over a year to get the project off the ground. “It’s fair to say that Paper & Cup would not have happened without Vincent Mckevitt," said Brent Clark of the SCT. Mckevitt said: “This is an amazing project that I am proud to have been involved in. Brent is a great guy and I am sure he will go on to be a dab hand in the hospitality industry.”
