Support for relevant charities
The Group is committed to the communities in which it operates and undertakes a range of initiatives that benefit our local communities.
Tennent’s Light SpotLight Project
In September 2021, Tennent’s Light announced a £250,000, three-year commitment to grassroots creative talent in Scotland, following a devastating year for arts and culture due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The ‘SpotLight Project’ sees Tennent’s Light invest 3.5% from every pint and bottle sold to support Scotland’s up and coming creative talent. In year 1, the initiative received more than 800 applications. Five creatives, Danny Aubrey, Katie Doyle, Jubemi Iyiku, Jonny MacKinnon and Michael Rankin, have been chosen, spanning sectors including music, sustainable fashion, film, photography and skateboarding.
Community Pub Hero Awards
In 2022, Matthew Clark, will again partner with PubAid and the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group to support the Community Pub Hero Awards. The initiative recognises the critical role that hospitality plays across the UK, together with licensees and teams who went the extra mile to help their communities through the pandemic.
