Patients, staff and visitors at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) can now support local business Tired Mums Coffee by purchasing their range of delicious, specialty coffee blends in the League of Friends shop.

Tired Mums Coffee was founded by Laura Peill and Gemma Brett, whose paths first crossed during their NHS careers and one day, over a conversation in a soft play centre with coffees in hand, the concept of Tired Mums Coffee was born.

The two mums, who have both worked at RJAH for many years, strive to boost the motherhood experience through great tasting coffee with a purpose. They aim to improve peer support and wellbeing for mums and ensure conversations are happening all over the UK.

Their specialty grade coffee is Fairtrade and the decaf option is mountain water washed – they’re all available to try with a choice of brewing kit.

Laura said: “We feel really privileged to play our part in supporting mums and enhancing the motherhood experience.

“Our research has found that service provisions have changed post-covid, and that there is an increasing call for focus on maternal wellbeing to support those in need.

“We have a duty to help other mums if we can, this gig is a tough one for all of us.”

Gemma said: “Working at RJAH means we see first-hand the amazing ways in which the Friends charity supports the hospital, we’re really pleased that our coffee is now stocked at their on-site shop.”

Victoria Sugden, Charity Director for the Friends, said: We’re so happy to be stocking Tired Mums Coffee in our shop and supporting a local brand which is not only innovative but has great core values.

“We wish Laura and Gemma every success with their business!”
