Famous faces including Martin Compston, Kate Garraway, Martin Kemp, Chris Evans, Nikesh Patel, Ashley Roberts and Matt Willis all gathered together today to support the launch of brand new ‘pay-it-forward’ coffee shop in central London, in a bid to help tackle homelessness.

The group of famous faces took turns to serve coffee, sandwiches, hot food and drinks to morning commuters and tourists at the new Social Bite coffee shop, whilst also encouraging them to ‘pay-it-forward’, a rewarding system whereby customers can buy an additional meal or hot drink in advance for someone who is homeless to redeem later. Each of them also got a chance to meet the new coffee shop employees, some of which have also once experienced homelessness and unemployment.

The new Social Bite coffee shop – located on The Strand – is its first shop to launch outside of Scotland. Social Bite’s Edinburgh branches have previously been visited by some huge stars including Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
