The Licensed Trade Charity, who are dedicated to supporting workers in the licensed drinks trade, marked their 229th year launching their latest Impact Report (https://www.licensedtradecharity.org.uk/site/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/1728_LTC_Impact-report_2021_final.pdf) and gave un update of their work held in London Kensington at the Royal Garden Hotel on 6th October 2022.
Presentations included a snapshot of the support given in 2021 including over £1.7m awarded in financial grants and services and an insight into the Charity’s plans for the future.
Director of Finance James Hathaway said “We are delighted to have been joined by so many of our volunteers, supporters, operators, and partners here today. Their dedication and hard work helped us to support record numbers of people in our industry during the Covid-19 pandemic, and will enable us to continue providing invaluable help as the industry and its people face a new set of challenges over the coming months and years.”
At the Licensed Trade Charity Awards Dinner later that evening, the Charity recognised and celebrated that support from operators and service delivery partners with their Licensed Trade Charity 2022 Awards.
