The Sparrow’s Nest in East Victoria Park introduced suspended coffees last week and has already helped at least one person in need.

The concept of suspended coffees has been shared around the world through social media. It asks people to buy their coffee, but pay for two ” the extra coffee is written up on a board and goes to someone less fortunate.

‘It doesn’t have to be a homeless person, just someone down on their luck,’ Ms Wolinski said.

Ms Wolinksi, who started this in the caf�, said word had been spreading fast.

‘One of my regular customers came in and told me about it and I thought it was an amazing opportunity to be able to help people,’ she said.

‘I have been in the kind of situation where I couldn’t afford things’
