Following the phenomenal success of the partnership between The Lord’s Taverners and Marston’s, a £9,216 cheque was presented by Marston’s to long-time supporter and President of The Lord’s Taverners, Chris Tarrant, at Lord’s on Saturday 18th July.
The golden, 4.2%ABV guest beer appeared in several county cricket grounds and in Marston’s pubs throughout the UK including the Tavern pub at Lord’s in June. Marston’s supported the charity by donating a percentage of each pint sold helping raise funds for recreational cricket’s official charity. The Lord’s Taverners and Marston’s are now looking forward to extending their partnership and continued support for grass roots cricket.
Peter Jackson, Marketing Director of Marston’s Beer Company, said: “Marston’s is a strong supporter of cricket from grass roots club sponsorships to the England team and everything in between. We are delighted to have raised nearly £10,000 for The Lord’s Taverners through sales of a new guest ale and dedicated activity across our pub estate.
Matthew Patten, Chief Executive of The Lord’s Taverners said, “We are delighted to be associated with a national consumer brand that sits at the heart of cricket. Through the development of long-term commercial relationships we are able to raise the profile of the charity which allows us to promote and support grass roots cricket. I would like to thank Marston’s for its support of The Lord’s Tave rners and look forward to working closely with them in the future to continue this great work at the heart of cricket.”
