The ongoing situation with Covid-19 continues to bring many challenges and in recent weeks Tennent’s has been working hard to support our staff and customers during these unchartered times.
We have also been busy in the background exploring how we can continue to support the local communities in which we operate who now more than ever need our help.
Working with our 3rd party suppliers, we identified a range of products including thousands of cases of water, juice, soft drinks and crisps that we have been able to distribute amongst a range of fantastic causes and groups throughout central Scotland, including:
With the support of our 3rd party suppliers, we are pleased to have been able to help so many causes who are continuing to provide invaluable services to those who need it most. Although we can only support a tiny fraction of those charities and groups in need, this is something we are continuing to look at across the business with plans to support as wide a range of community groups as possible.
We are also delighted to support Copper Rivet Distillery in Kent with the provision of high alcohol (>70%) waste beer for distillation into hand sanitiser. Tennent’s is providing 180000l of high strength beer (equivalent to over 6 million pints of Tennent’s Lager) which the Distillery will convert into hand sanitiser for distribution to frontline services including the British Transport Police (Scotland) and the Metropolitan Police.
The on-trade continues to be a key focus for the business as the hospitality industry faces some of its most challenging times. As well as working closely with our customers and suppliers, looking at how we can best support them now and in the months to come, Tennent’s has continued its long term support of The Ben, The Scottish Licensed Trade Benevolent Society, which provides a range of supportive measures to help and care for former and current members of the trade.
As a business we are committed to working with our colleagues, customers, suppliers, wider trade and the many communities in which we operate as we navigate these difficult times together.
