Although our local pubs can't welcome us at the moment, they are finding creative ways to serve their communities.
Greene King have teamed up with My Pub Shop, an online platform that pairs customers with their local pubs, who have transformed into click & collect grocery shops. Any of Greene King pubs are able to sign up to the national scheme to help their communities access essential items.
With more than 2,000 pop up shops expected to open up this could be a lifeline for many people. The Idea is that communities can stay connected and cupboards well stocked whilst businesses that are struggling during these times are able to earn some money.
The scheme is still in its early days, but you can find out if your local pub has signed up here.
Our pubs are always there for us, and during a pandemic that doesn’t change. Greene King have been supporting Leonard Cheshire care homes with vital donations – they have so far delivered 600 barrels of disinfectant.
