Punch Taverns plc has announced that it has donated £16,000 to 36 charities and causes during its last financial year.

The donations, made via Punch’s Community Promise charitable initiative, include contributions to national campaigns such as the British Red Cross for victims of the Manchester bombing and support for the Grenfell Tower victims and their families

Support for larger national charities has included £2,000 to Children in Need, £1,000 for Comic Relief and £1,000 for the Team Margot Foundation, which encourages people to register as potential stem cell and bone marrow donors.

Other beneficiaries included elderly residents from the Carden Bank care home who enjoyed a free carvery lunch at the Blacksmith’s Arms in Burton and students from Silverhill Primary in Mickleover who had an outdoor play area built with funds raised.

Headteacher of Silverhill Primary, Kate Nash, said: “We are hugely grateful to Punch for this donation – the children are benefitting a great deal from their new outdoor space. They all genuinely enjoy playing in the new areas at all times of the day.”

HR & services director for Punch, Jackie Burn, added: “British pubs are so critical to the communities they serve and we are hugely proud to have publicans that have helped raise thousands for so many worthy causes over the years."
