Our mission: to support and advance Britain’s bees as well as improve the wellbeing of those who frequent or work in our pubs and the surrounding local communities.
Pubs have always been the heart of the community and over the years, Brakspear pubs have raised a lot of money for various charities including Sue Ryder, Marie Curie and Mind. We’re changing how we do things so more charities can benefit. The Brakspear Giving Back fund is a pot of money all pubs can raise money for and then decide how it’s spent. Tom Davies, Brakspear CEO, has also confirmed Brakspear will donate £25k every year into the fund so that’s quite a head start!
The fund has a committee who decide how and where the money is spent. This team is made up of Brakspear tenants as well as folk from Brakspear head office and general managers from the managed houses.
The Giving Back Committee: (from left top row) Sean – the Blackwood Arms, Matt & Emma – Brakspear HO, John the beekeeper (not on the committee but an important part of this project!), Claire – the Hare & Hounds, Tom & Gerard – Brakspear HO, (from left bottom row) Peter – the Horseshoe inn, Jaci and Alexa – Brakspear HO.
