We receive a substantial amount of requests for charitable donations and sponsorship throughout the year. To accommodate as many of these requests as possible, a committee was set up and ShepsGiving was conceived.
The ShepsGiving team have helped to raise thousands of pounds for a wide range of charities locally and nationally. Primarily we support those who request funds with our products or vouchers for our pubs, hotels or Visitor Centre. *
The ShepsGiving committee considers all appropriate requests for support and will prioritise causes or charities that are based in Kent, local to Faversham or the communities that our pubs serve.
We will consider favourable charities or events that support our corporate or brand objectives.
We request that to be considered, you give the committee at least one month’s notice ahead if support is being required.
Only in very exceptional circumstances will cash donations be considered.
Shepherd Neame is guided by official bodies within in the alcohol industry with regards to children’s charities, and events for those under 18 years old.
We are sorry but we are unable to consider requests to support individual fundraisers who are raising money to take part in organised overseas challenges or trips.
We aim to support as many charities as possible and therefore we request that local applicants strongly consider collecting product from our Visitor Centre Shop or distribution centre.
*Please note that vouchers for pubs and hotels can only be used in the outlets named on the vouchers itself and do not cover alcohol.
Kent Messenger Big Quiz
We have supported the KM Big Quiz for more than a decade, in the last year the charity has raised more than £30,000 for a variety of good causes.
The Spitfire 7’s
The Spitfire Rugby 7’s are sponsored by the Spitfire Brand and regularly raise large amounts for the RAF Benevolent Fund, Help for Heroes and other forces charities.
The Beach Clean
A monthly beach clean takes place on Whitstable Beach, sponsored by the Faversham Steam Brewery and Whitstable Bay. Volunteers spend a couple of hours of their day helping to tidy the stunning coastline and are rewarded with a well-deserved drink at the pub.
