Our Pub Heroes Have Been Announced!
The 2020 Great British Pub Awards reached their exciting conclusion on 24 September, culminating in an emotional livestream where this year’s winners were revealed. The event was streamed into pubs and homes up and down the country where our celebrity host Stephen Mulhern took the audience on a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows with the lockdown stories of pubs across Britain. It was certainly emotional!
Each winner of this year’s special Great British Pub Awards will now have the opportunity to submit an application for a grant of up to £10,000 to fund a business improvement or to put towards a community project, courtesy of Coca-Cola! Additionally, Coca-Cola will fund a further £1,000 donation to a local charity or good cause of their choice. The prize is funded as part of the 120 million dollars that the global Coca-Cola system donated to Covid-19 relief efforts in affected communities.
A huge congratulations to all of our winners and entrants. It’s been an exceptionally tough year for everybody in the industry, but we hope these special awards have really highlighted some positives from this year and showed the British public and government the amazing things that have been achieved by pubs facing financial crisis during lockdown.
