Speciality Drinks has once again partnered with Edrington-Beam Suntory UK to supply wellbeing packs to those working in the UK drinks and hospitality sectors to help ease the pressures caused by the latest government measures to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the UK’s second lockdown upon us and hospitality venues once more closed, the team at Speciality Drinks, working in partnership with Edrington-Beam Suntory, has restocked its supplies to deliver 2000 more free wellbeing packs containing food and other essentials to those in the drinks industry who need them most.
The wellbeing packs, containing food and store-cupboard essentials, will be made available via the Speciality Drinks website from today. All members of the drinks and hospitality sector who find themselves out of work or struggling to obtain the essentials they need day-to-day will be able to apply for a pack by providing a few simple details online.
Rajbir Singh, co-founder of Speciality Drinks, states:
“Covid-19 has left people vulnerable in our industry – an industry that has supported us as we’ve grown as a company. We see those working for licensed businesses as part of our family and we want them to know that they are not alone, and that we will do as much as we can to help them to take care of themselves and their families.”
Spirits distributor Edrington-Beam Suntory UK has provided the funding to support this initiative.
Those wishing to apply for a pack can do so online: https://specalitydrinks.com/magazine/1468/wellbeing-packs-for-the-industry/
Anyone working for a licensed hospitality business in the UK is eligible. The Speciality Drinks customer service team will process the applications and organise delivery of each wellbeing parcel.
The Speciality Drinks and Edrington-Beam Suntory UK teams are also helping to promote other bodies who can help. Drinks industry charities such as the incredible The Drinks Trust (England and Wales) and The Ben in Scotland are working to support those in the industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
