The Lacemaker's Son

Ted's tale is a gift

Metod (Ted) Setnikar was just four years old when his father sold him for two litres of schnapps and a handful of cigarettes.

The Lacemaker's Son is Ted's story of his escape to Australia – as far away as he could imagine from a life of servitude in 1950s Slovenia.

It's not only compelling reading, but all profits from ongoing sales of The Lacemaker's Son are donated to Hutt St Centre where Ted dedicates his time each week to prepare meals for people experiencing homelessness.

The Hope Beans Coffee Project started at St Mary’s Memorial school and is a business run by Year 6 students, in conjunction with Monastery Coffee.  

Hope Beans Coffee is ethically sourced from Uganda and roasted by Monastery Coffee, a small batch roaster of sustainable, traceable coffee based in Adelaide, SA. Hope Beans believe in an economically sustainable supply chain, in which everybody from the consumer to the farmer is empowered.

Hope Beans make sure everyone in the chain is paid fairly, as well as supporting Hutt St Centre to help end homelessness.
