The Craft Union pub company has launched Tears for Tiers which will see pubs help feed the hungry, help those struggling in the hospitality industry and start toy appeals. It is working in partnership with hospitality charity partner Only A Pavement Away. The Woodman, Manchester Road, has been inundated with donations, which are covering various spaces in the pub, ready to go to those in need.

Frazer Grimbleby, Operations Director for Craft Union said: “As we continue to navigate our way through the pandemic, it is becoming more apparent that our operators want to do as much as they can to help and be there to support their local communities.

“Although we cannot trade as normal, our pubs have continued to be community hubs, and our local heroes are as always, there to support those people who need them most.
“Tears for Tiers is just one of the many initiatives that our operators at the Woodman, the Black Bull and the George in Brighouse and the Top Odd in Wyke, as well as Craft Union pubs across the country, are undertaking to help their communities.

“As no one really knows what 2021 will look like in the new Covid-19 world, it is important that we continue to work together and help others in any way we can, continuing to keep spirits high.”

Greg Mangham, Founder and Chief Executive of Only A Pavement Away, added: “We are thrilled to be working with Craft Union. Their community-led ethos is inspiring and their CraftySquad is incredible. The hard work and charitable support they give is fantastic and I know they will make this a success.”
