Everything by Liz Gaffer


Working Together: Corporate Partnerships


Since launching our new Support and Care service last year, we’ve had a great response and plenty of interest from the larger pub companies and brewers alike, wanting to know more about how the Charity helps all the hard-working people in our trade when they face difficulties. And I feel that we’ve gone some way to addressing the negative perception about us ‘helping the failures’.

Recovering from the personal effects of Flooding


Since the severe weather hit the UK at the turn of 2014 we responded quickly by putting together a useful factsheet that provides practical, step-by-step guidance on what to do if your pub has been affected by floodwater. We have also contacted relevant trade press to raise awareness of how the Support and Care team at the Licensed Trade Charity are here to help. To-date we have received several calls from people in need of help from across the South of England, including Cornwall, Southampton and as far down as Kent.

Challenges ahead for Licensed Trade Charity


Getting our message and free 0808 801 0550 helpline number in front of all the hard-working people in the pubs and breweries, to let them know we are here for them when they face difficulties is a critical part of my job. So it’s great to hear that there is now something of a ‘buzz’ around the industry about the good work the Licensed Trade Charity is doing.

A Promising Start


Since re-launching the Charity’s new Support and Care website this summer we have seen a 30% increase in the number of visitors to our website, which is a clear indicator to me that we are a useful and relevant support for those in the licensed drinks trade.
