Shepherd Neame has today (Monday, April 27) reopened its online shop and will be making a donation to the NHS for every item ordered until the end of May.
Britain’s oldest brewer, based in Faversham, continues to produce beer but its brewery shop, along with its pubs and hotels, have been closed since March 20 in line with Government advice.
Shepherd Neame’s online shop had also been temporarily closed during this time but has now reopened selling a limited range of beers, wines and ciders.
There is a minimum requirement of two items per order, and delivery is free to any mainland UK address. Shepherd Neame will make a £1 donation to the Kent NHS Community Heroes charity for every case of beer, wine or cider ordered until the end of May.
Chief Executive Jonathan Neame said: “We have received lots of enquiries from customers keen to buy their favourite products from us, and are pleased to be able to relaunch our online shop again today. We are also delighted to announce that we will be making a £1 contribution to our local NHS charity for every item ordered until the end of May. It was important to us to do something to show our NHS workers just how much we appreciate their selfless, dedicated efforts to keep us safe at this difficult time.”
Paul Bentley, Chief Executive of Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We would like to thank Shepherd Neame for generously offering to support our charity with this fundraising activity. Our community NHS teams are facing the biggest challenge in a generation, and these donations will help us to support their health and wellbeing, while people enjoy a drink – in moderation of course.”
