MP FOR Redditch, Rachel Maclean, is encouraging residents to submit nominations on behalf of Redditch pubs for the Community Pub Hero Awards 2022.
PubAid and the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group are once again on the look out to recognise and reward those pubs who go the extra mile to support their local communities and raise money for charity.
This year the competition has been expanded with the creation of separate awards for Community Support Pub Hero and Charity Fundraising Pub Hero.
The Community Support Pub Hero Award recognises licensees who help their communities.
The Charity Fundraising Pub Hero recognises pubs who support charities and other good causes through fundraising. This can be through a collection tin on the bar, charity events ranging from quizzes or auctions through to fun days, or sponsored challenges by the licensee, team members or pub customers.
To ensure pubs in Redditch receive the recognition their deserve, Rachel is encouraging residents to nominate their local for one of the awards up for grabs.
After nominations have closed on Thursday, October 27th at 5pm, Rachel will then whittle the nominations down to just one pub per category.
They will then become Redditch’s nomination for the Community Support Pub Hero Award and Charity Fundraising Pub Hero Award.
PubAid and the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group judges will then review the entries received and publish a shortlist. They will be invited, with their local MP, to a reception in London early next year, where they will present them with a certificate before announcing the overall winners.
Mrs Maclean said: “Our pubs our at the heart of their communities and it’s right we recognise the contribution they make to our town.
“Every year they raise vital funds for charities and good causes, as well as ensuring they support their communities.
“I want to celebrate these pubs and so I would encourage residents to submit nominations on behalf of their local for a Community Pub Hero Award.”
