PUNCH CELEBRATES COMMUNITY HEROES

Punch Pubs & Co are celebrating local heroes for their superhuman efforts in 2020. The independent pub operators are calling on their 1,200 Publicans and their guests to nominate local people who have done something amazing for their community.

The initiative is part of the Community Hero campaign, where pub-goers can nominate their hero via an online application form, with the chance for the nominee to win £1,000 and have a cask ale named after them. Runners up are also in for the chance to win £500 and £250. The campaign has been created to give something back to the communities Punch are part of and to bring people together by sharing these amazing stories.

Speaking about the initiative, marketing and strategy director Russell Danks said, “More than ever before we have seen people from all walks of life, stepping up to do fantastic things for their communities. The Great British Pub sits at the very heart of those communities and has continued to prove that it remains a central hub where people connect. A place where memories are made and stories are shared. Although we can’t be together in the pub at the moment, we want to hear these stories and give back to those who are dedicated to doing good and have provided vital support during a tough year”.

Nominations can be made at pubcommunityhero.com up until 28th February 2021.
