The Drinks Trust and Champagne Academy collaboration for COVID-19 Emergency Financial Fund including the ’16 Champagne’s of Christmas’ raffle and other summer raffles.
As part of our three year commitment to The Drinks Trust, The Champagne Academy has launched a range of fundraising initiatives to support the charity’s work, especially in these turbulent times.
The Drinks Trust - has been working hard to ensure that vital support is given to the people of our industry, and that the most vulnerable are able to access the services they require from their industry charitable organisation. Since the beginning of March 2020, demand for their services has increased significantly and many individuals are in desperate need and several thousand have applied to their hardship Fund which is being administered now.
The Champagne Academy and our 16 Grande Marques Champagnes are eager to play our part in fundraising for this incredibly worthy cause and helping support our industry in these uncertain times. – Andrew Fullerton – Chairman of the Champagne Academy
The Champagne Academy, in partnership with their 16 Grandes Marques Houses, has support various raffles in 2020 to help raise funds. All money raised will enable The Champagne Academy to support the work of The Drinks Trust including over 350 vulnerable existing beneficiaries, a significant proportion of whom are retired drinks industry staff and amongst the most at-risk groups with regards to COVID 19. It will also help provide more wellbeing services as the increase in demand for the helpline and talking therapies grow.
This year the Champagne Academy are proud to announce and total funds raised through the AGM raffle and 3 online raffles for the The Drinks trust is £11,052.91!
