A BISHOP turned barista for the day.
Tony Robinson, suffragan Bishop for Wakefield Diocese worked at Coffee Evolution in Huddersfield.
The Bishop – who was still wearing his dog collar – was raising awareness of how small scale coffee farmers in Nicaragua are being supported by international development agency Christian Aid.
The Bishop learnt how to make latte and cappuccino in the run up to Christian Aid Week which began yesterday.
Christian Aid has helped to change the lives of thousands of people in Nicaragua by helping farmers to get a fair price for their coffee.
Coffee Evolution on Church Street was the first fully Fairtrade coffee shop in the town and was delighted to host the Bishop.
The Right Rev Robinson said: “The story of the coffee farmers in Nicaragua is one of hope. It shows how our actions can help to support thousands of people around the world work their way out of poverty.
“I have been privileged to visit some of Christian Aid’s local partners in Senegal and Tanzania and see how they bring about positive change in people’s lives.”
