Meet Tom, and say goodbye to his beard.

Meet Tom, and say goodbye to his beard.

Meet Tom.


Tom is a valued and long-standing member of Black Velvet Coffee. He began as a barista, moved to Store Manager and is soon to take on the role of General Manager. Along with his rise in position in our company, his beard has grown concurrently (and grown, and grown...)

It’s time to shave it off and Tom is volunteering to risk his lumberjack image to raise money through The World’s Greatest Shave and raise vital funds for the Leukaemia Foundation’s important work.

Each day, 35 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a blood related disorder. Blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma. An Australian loses their life to blood cancer every 2 hours, far too many to ignore.  

So, let’s all get together, sponsor Tom and amaze ourselves with the sight that awaits us underneath his bushy growth.

When: Friday 17th March at 1PM

Where: Black Velvet Espresso, 136 Exhibition St Melbourne

How to sponsor: Use the following link or donate in-store.

You’ll find some special treats from Black Velvet available on the day and there are guaranteed to be a few laughs! So, get involved, sponsor Tom and let’s help make this world a little easier for some deserving members of our community.
