Stonegate Group rolls out National Pub Fortnight campaign offers free drinks* across hundreds of pubs from 9th – 22nd August

Stonegate Group has partnered with Budweiser Brewing Group UK&I, Diageo, Heineken, Molson Coors, Carlsberg, and Coca Cola to offer its customers free drinks* across hundreds of pubs this August. This year the initiative is in support of suicide prevention charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and the buy one get on free function is designed to encourage customers to reach out to friends and family to join them for a drink at the pub.

There are thousands of free drinks available for customers to enjoy across National Pub Fortnight as part of the offer that has rolled out across more than 1500 participating pubs in the UK.

Running from Monday 9th August to Sunday 22nd August, customers can download a voucher via the Great British Pubs website. The site also contains a search function to find out which pubs in respective areas are taking part.

Nick Light, Managing Director of Stonegate Pub Partners, said: “We are delighted to be running our free drinks campaign again. But this time, we want to focus on the importance of the social aspect of the pub. For the last 18-months, our social contact has been restricted, leaving some people with feelings of loneliness, that’s why we’re running this year’s National Pub Fortnight in support of CALM’s helpline services, and encouraging our customers to reach out to friends and family members for a drink.

“Our customers have always been fantastic in supporting their local pubs, and this is our way of giving something back to them. This offer is about allowing our customers to continue to enjoy their local pubs and the sociable environment that our publicans and teams deliver on a daily basis while having a drink on us.”

Stonegate Group will also be making a significant contribution to CALM and pubs across the country will be raising money in support of the charity’s crucial work in providing frontline support for those facing a crisis point, or feeling like they need to talk about life’s problems.
