Reaching Out Across The Region

The St Austell Brewery Charitable Trust was set up in 2003 to support local charities, good causes and individuals in need across our South West operating area. The Trust is funded by contributions from the Brewery plus donations and fundraising events held by our head office, depot and pub teams as well as our free trade customers. To date, the Charitable Trust has raised over £800,000.

One of our biggest fundraisers is the annual Celtic Beer festival in the Brewery cellars, which has raised over £200,000 and all of the money raised for the Trust goes straight back out to local communities where it is needed most.

Helping Others across the South West

Every request for support received is considered by the Trust’s Donations Committee, consisting of volunteers from across the business, whose decisions are supported by members of the Brewery’s Senior Management Team acting as Trustees.

Charities supported by the Trust include the RNLI, Cornwall Air Ambulance, Children’s Hospice South West, Macmillan Cancer Support and many others, with over a third of all money raised being donated to individuals and small local groups across the South West.
