Northern Monk has given away free cans of beer to the people working on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is the second time that Northern Monk has completed a 5,000 can donation – the brewery did the same thing back in March, and wanted to repeat the process for the people keeping our communities safe, and informed, during this second national lockdown.
The complimentary beer was available in packs of 4X330ml cans via Northern Monk’s online shop, and all cans were claimed. There was no proof required to claim the cans, Northern Monk put its faith in the community to join it in giving a gift to front line workers, and to help the brewery notify the relevant people about the free cans, rather than claiming the beer for themselves.
This is one of several charitable initiatives, related to the impact of the pandemic, that Northern Monk has done since March. Aside from donating 10,000 free cans of Faith to front line workers.
Northern Monk’s aim is to support the community in the North as much as they can, during an incredibly difficult time for all. By running the free Faith initiative once again, they are hoping to shed a little light in the difficult days that the people on the front line are facing.
Founder of Northern Monk, Russell Bisset, said: “In the midst of the second national lockdown, and in the run up to the festive period, there’s never been a more important time for us to show our support for the incredible work that NHS staff, front line care workers, teachers, lecturers, support workers and more, are doing during this time.
“At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we gave more money to charity than we made as a business – and we don’t intend to stop giving yet. Thank you to everybody that helped us keep the Faith and get the beer into the hands of the right people this weekend.”
