Brewer backs industry colleagues

Tennents advent calendar

SCOTTISH brewer Tennent’s dug deep over the festive period to support Scottish licensed trade charity The Ben.

Tennent’s donated all profits from online sales on ‘Black Friday’ to support on-trade staff who have fallen on hard times as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to disrupt the hospitality sector.

Linzi Gibson, junior brand manager at Tennent’s said: “Black Friday is traditionally one of the busiest Fridays in the hospitality calendar, but sadly that [was not] the case this year.

“Tennent’s is a long-time patron of The Ben and we know how hard-hit people who have worked in the industry have been with the continued impact from Covid-19.

“We hope that the proceeds from our online store on this day will go some way to providing help for those who need it.”
