AB InBev UK is part of the world’s leading brewer and produces some of the country’s best-known beer brands, including Stella Artois, Corona, Budweiser and Beck’s.
How the partnership works
Supporting local communities is one of the key areas of AB InBev‘s ‘Better World’ corporate social responsibility programme. With this in mind, AB InBev’s operations across the country are matched with a local hospice so their employees can support hospice care in the communities where they live and work, as well as Hospice UK’s national projects too.
What we have achieved
Volunteering is a strong focus for our partnership, with more than 70 employees from across the country getting hands on with helping their local hospice and dedicating over 300 hours of support in 2015.
AB InBev’s People Director for UK and Ireland took on the London Marathon 2015 to raise more than £3,000 for Hospice UK.
In August 2015 a team of five colleagues on AB InBev’s Graduate Programme organised their own cycle ride challenge from London to Leuven, Belgium (AB InBev’s UK office and AB InBev’s Global Headquarters) and raised over £1,200.
Also in August 2015 AB InBev’s summer interns took on a one day charity shop challenge to raise more than £1,600 for Hospice UK and Keech Hospice.
In March 2016 a team of 13 from AB InBev’s Magor Brewery ran the Newport Half Marathon and raised over £2,000.
What AB InBev have to say about the partnership
“Our partnership with Hospice UK offers AB InBev colleagues a broad variety of opportunities to engage with hospice care, from volunteering in hospice gardens to taking over a hospice shop for a day. We are proud to be supporting Hospice UK as our national charity partner, as well as hospices that are local to our UK locations. It is really important to AB InBev that colleagues can make a difference to the communities where they work and our partnership allows us to do just that.”
