Adnams Charity grant donations reach £1 million

By Emma Hibbert, also posted in News on

The Warren School in Oulton Broad received a grant of £1,000 in 2014The Adnams Charity has, to date, given away grants totalling more than £1 million. The Adnams Charity was founded in 1990 to celebrate Adnams’ centenary as a public company and is funded by a percentage of Adnams annual profits, mandated dividends, donations and legacies. The Charity supports worthwhile causes within a 25-mile radius of brewery’s base in Southwold and individual grants normally range from £100 to £2,500. One of the many organisations to have benefited from the Adnams Charity is the Warren School in Oulton Broad. Its grant of £1,000 this year allowed the school to take 20 pupils of varying special needs to Snowdonia in North Wales for an outdoor activity week. Other organisations to have received support include local sports teams, arts groups and environmental causes. Commenting on the activity week teacher Matt Clackett, from the Warren School, said “The activity week – which included rock climbing, bush crafts and archery – offered many of the school’s pupils a once in a lifetime opportunity that they may never get again. Put simply, the only way this trip was possible was due to Adnams’ generous support and funding; without it, we really would be still at the planning stage. The Adnams Charity is a fantastic support to the local community and we would like to thank Adnams again for their funding this year.” Jonathan Adnams, Chairman, said “The Adnams Charity is an integral part of Adnams and we are so immensely proud of the support we can offer to the local community. The Warren School is a great example of how the Charity really can make a huge difference and we’re so delighted that the grant has had such a positive impact on the lives of those at the school.” “Reaching the £1 million mark is also a momentous occasion and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported the Charity over the last 14 years – their generosity means we have been able to help many more people than would otherwise have been possible.” For more information, or to apply for an Adnams grant, please visit the Adnams Charity webpage or email charity@adnams.co.uk If you'd like to donate to the Adnams Charity, you can do so here.
