Hundreds of hampers have been created and donated by Marston's to support local community events held at pubs across the UK.

A total of 27 pubs that are going above and beyond during the festive season have been highlighted by Marston's and are set to receive a selection of Christmas hampers to help support donations to their local community.

As part of Marston's 'Heroes of the Community' initiative, where employees at Head Office work together to raise awareness and support for local charities, the hamper donation will support pubs holding community based events targeting those most vulnerable at Christmas.

There will be 400 hampers delivered in total.

Jenny Nalborczyk, marketing manager at Marston's who oversaw the hamper donation, said: "The work our pubs do at this time of year to celebrate the festive season, but also support those within the local community is honourable.

"We are so proud to be able to help and support these events by getting stuck in with our team members to pack each individual hamper.

"We were lucky enough to also receive support from some of our suppliers who donated a selection of drinks and food for us to include."

All hampers will be delivered by Head Office staff to the nominated pubs before their event takes place.
