Last year we kicked off our Charity Partners programme; a fundraising scheme for organisations close to our hearts. Different members of the Wiper and True team chose local causes to support each month, and with your support, we raise as much cash as possible to support their work.
Our final partner of the year was Brigstowe, an organisation which supports those living with HIV and other long-term health conditions. We’re pleased to have raised £731.77 to support their work.
2022 TOTAL DONATIONS
We're so proud to say that throughout 2022, we raised a total of £6944.56 for our twelve charity partners.
Thank you to each of you who helped us raise as much as possible.
JANUARY CHARITY PARTNER: Bristol Soup Run Trust
The Charity Partner programme has been a huge success, and so in 2023 we're doing it again. In January, we kick things off raising money for Bristol Soup Run Trust.
Bristol Soup Run Trust provides a nightly service providing food and support for people facing homelessness and poverty. Find out more about their work on their website.
HOW DOES THE WIPER AND TRUE CHARITY PARTNER PROGRAMME WORK?
Each month, the Wiper and True team choose a charity to partner with. All of our fundraising efforts that month will raise money for this charity or cause.
How do you raise money for the charities?
Each month we will be raising money by three methods:
- We donate: we will donate £1 from every order on our online shop for a certain time period in a month - usually a week or weekend at a time. This doesn't cost you anything extra - we make the donation on your behalf. We will let you know when this is happening each month, via our social media channels.
- Karma Keg: each month at our Bristol Taprooms we will choose a designated 'Karma Keg'. Usually an exciting new release, we'll donate 100% of the profits from this keg to our chosen charity. We will mark the chosen Karma Keg clearly on our beer menus. All you have to do is order a pint!
- You donate: you may have noticed the option to add an additional charity donation when checking out an order on our online shop. We'll collect these additional donations for our chosen charity for a whole month, then make a lump sum donation at the end of the month.
