To celebrate World Mental Health Day today, we’re supporting a cause close to our hearts: our friends, families, partners and colleagues of the events industry, who have been hit hard by the Covid-19 crisis.
Events have been flowing through our beery veins since the very beginning… Our London Brewers’ Market, founded in 2014 to support fellow indy brewers; collaborating with Field Day to brew our Citrus Pale Ale, or having XPA flowing on the bars of All Points East Festival in Victoria Park last year… That’s not to mention the wonderful beer festivals we’ve enjoyed – as both brewers and punters – from the London Craft Beer Festival, to Manchester’s Indyman, Newcastle’s Craft Beer Calling – and beyond.
Events – from the memories made to the people we’ve met – have been a big part of our story, and most likely yours, too. While the experiences of these might feel like a distant memory at times, it’s necessary and important to continue supporting those in the events industries while they cannot operate.
This month, we are donating £1 for every order placed on the webshop to #WeMakeEvents, an international movement to highlight that the live events sector urgently needs support from local governments to survive the Covid-19 crisis.
In their own words: This industry creates millions of memories with millions of stories, stories that are told, and retold to friends and families around the world. #WeMakeEvents is committed to help ensure this continues.
Over the past few months we’ve partnered with six charities – with us donating £1 for every order placed on our webshop. Together we’ve raised almost £4,000 for the National Emergencies Trust, Mind in the City, Hackney & Waltham Forest, The Trussell Trust, Black Minds Matter UK, Dalston Eastern Curve Garden and Hackney Bumps Community Group. Thanks to everyone who’s helped us spread some support – and we hope you’ve enjoyed the beer, too!
And, to give you more reason to place an order, we’re offering 10% off all orders placed for the next week with the code WEMAKEBEER. We all need help in these uncertain times, and we want to help by doing what we do best: making beer.
We’ve also created additional donations that you can add to your order, to join in supporting #WeMakeEvents with a little extra.
