We understand the importance of giving back, so each year Anno Distillers works with two charities to support fundraising or help with events in the surrounding community.
One of our current partners is Spadework in Offham, West Malling which is a charity providing care, support and meaningful opportunities to over 110 adults with learning and other disabilities. These trainees work in the garden centre, farm shop and cafe which is open to the public 7 days a week. Find Spadework on Teston Road, Offham, West Malling, Kent ME19 5NA.
Anno spirits are sold in the shop and we attend fundraising evenings and tastings, providing refreshment to visitors. Most recently a tutored gin tasting event as part of their fundraising programme to raise money to build a new classroom and create more indoor space for trainees.
We are also supporting Bee Friendly Trust in their work shaping a world where honey bees and other pollinators can thrive. In 2016, they placed planters at Putney railway station to increase forage for urban bees. Nearby stations asked for planters of their own, Network Rail and TFL got involved and now the team has dedicated specialists and volunteers.
Following the success of their railway station work, they have now expanded into other parts of the UK, creating pollinator-friendly habitats. They also commission art projects to raise awareness of their work and run an educational 'BeeDome' - a mobile space to hold workshops and activities for all ages.
By donating 10p per 70cl bottle sale of Anno Orange & Honey Gin, we can help them with their valuable work. Visit their website and read more about the partnership.
