Admiral Taverns Donates £6,000 to Pub is The Hub

Admiral Taverns, the UK’s leading community pub group, has continued its support for Pub is The Hub with a donation of £6,000.

Over the last several years, Admiral Taverns – which owns more than 1,450 community pubs across the UK – has been a consistent supporter of Pub is The Hub contributing to the running of the organisation and its Community Services Fund.

Pub is The Hub is a non-profit organisation helping pubs to diversify and provide essential local services and activities. This can include a range of projects such as village stores, community cafes, allotments, libraries, play areas and wider social activities that tackle issues such as social isolation and loneliness.

Chief Executive Officer at Admiral Taverns, Chris Jowsey, said: “Pubs are the cornerstone of British life and it’s important to recognise that they aren’t just a place to drink which is highlighted through the fantastic work from the team at Pub is the Hub. We look forward to continuing to support their amazing work helping local communities.”

Pub is The Hub Chief Executive John Longden raised a glass to celebrate with Chris Jowsey at the Wheatsheaf on Oak Street in Manchester, where licensees Lisa Booth and Robert Ashton were presented with a plaque to thank them for all the help they give to their local community.

Chief Executive at Pub is The Hub, John Longden, commented: “A big thanks to Admiral Taverns and Chris for its increased support this year. We really could not exist as an organisation without the long-term support of companies such as Admiral.

“As a not-for-profit organisation we do not receive long-term funding, so donations are really essential to enable us to support heroic publicans and their pubs to diversify.”
