The Drinks Trust has appointed Troy Christensen as its new chair of the Board of Trustees as well as three new patrons in Ian Burrell, Becky Paskin and Jaega Wise.

In 2020, The Drinks Trust provided support to nearly 5,000 beneficiaries through both wellness services and financial aid which surpassed £1m in total.

The Drinks Trust has launched a survey in order to better understand what the industry’s thoughts are on diversity and inclusion.

Following a request for support through the “Your Round, Help Your Trade” campaign, The Drinks Trust has raised more than £1m to support members of the industry who have been affected by COVID-19.

Campari UK has created the Shaken Not Broken Fund to provide support to front-line workers in the hospitality industry during and following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Drinks Trust has fundraised more than £400,000 to support members of the drinks industry who have been left in financial crisis as a result of COVID-19.

The Benevolent charity has been renamed The Drinks Trust and carries a new logo, website and objectives for the foreseeable future.
