High street coffee chain Costa Coffee has won Best Family Friendly Café at the Tommy’s Awards for the third year in a row.

The Tommy’s Awards recognise and celebrate the best family-friendly companies, which help make the lives of parents and parents-to-be easier. This year, 44,688 votes were cast by the public. 

Jane Brewin, chief executive of Tommy’s, said: “We believe it is important to express our gratitude to those companies who go the extra mile.”

Now in its 21st year, the Tommy’s Awards raise awareness for Tommy’s, a charity that funds medical research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.

Last week, Costa confirmed it will be opening two new stores by April, in Chard and Crewkerne.
