Slug & Lettuce Partners With CoppaFeel! – Boobs, Boobettes and Boobtinis
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and leading bar brand, Slug & Lettuce is proud to partner with the breast cancer charity, Coppafeel! which is on a mission to encourage and empower young people to check their boobs and pecs.
For a limited time only, the one-of-a-kind Berry Boobtini mocktail will be making its way to bars up and down the country. From just £4.95, you can enjoy a mix of strawberry purée shaken with coconut syrup, cranberry juice, lime and apple juice topped with a dollop of cream and a raspberry. What’s more, when you buy this drink, Slug & Lettuce will donate 25p to CoppaFeel! on your behalf.
And the fun doesn’t stop there…a festive edition of the drink will be making its way to Christmas menus from 11th November with the Espresso Boobtini, a mix of coffee and cinnamon topped with cream.
All Slug & Lettuce sites across the country will be working with CoppaFeel! University Boob Teams to host events and raise funds for the charity.
The Slug & Lettuce in Bristol at the Harbourside on 5th October (https://www.slugandlettuce.co.uk/bristol-harbourside) will be hosting its very own ‘Boob Brunch’ where, for just £6.00 (£2.50 donation to CoppaFeel!) you can enjoy a brunch dish, a Boobtini, hot drinks, a Boobette talk and a mocktail masterclass.

CoppaFeel! is on a mission to educate the masses on boob and pec checking by educating on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, encouraging regular self-checking and empowering young people to see their GP if anything changes. The charity looks forward to spreading more awareness with Slug & Lettuce’s support – as it’s proven that early detection of breast cancer saves lives.
Ellie Baldwin, at CoppaFeel! said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Slug & Lettuce. We have made it our mission to get our message out there to the masses and what better way than through over 80 popular bars throughout the UK. Not only is the Berry Boobtini delicious but the 25p donation makes it even sweeter!”
Sarah Berry, Senior Brand Manager at Slug & Lettuce said: “Our partnership with CoppaFeel! is such an exciting time for us. Not only is it an incredibly worthy cause but the work they do throughout the UK is exceptional. We are excited to bring the Boobettes into bars up and down the country to spread the message even further.”
CoppaFeel! aims to ensure that all breast cancers are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible by educating people on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, encouraging them to check regularly and instilling the confidence to seek medical referral if they detect abnormalities. Currently 5% of diagnosed cases are already at stage IV with breast cancer being the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women under 30 in the UK (181 new cases diagnosed and 12 deaths annually). CoppaFeel! is the third most recognized breast cancer charity amongst young people and those aware of CoppaFeel! are 50% more likely to check their boobs regularly than those not aware (CoppaFeel! research, sample based upon 18 – 29 year olds. Jan 2019 research).
