The Licensed Trade Charity (LTC) has thanked Heineken for the brewer’s ongoing support of its student school in Ascot.

The charitable donation, which amounts to £100,000 over 10 years, has enabled the charity to equip the LVS Ascot school’s Learning Resource Centre.

Sue Bastone, head at the Centre, said the funding has given students the resources to help them excel in their work.

“As a non-selective school, the outstanding exam results and the enjoyment our students get out of learning here reflect the contribution Heineken has made to their studies, and lives.”

Stephen Spencer-Jones, brewers trading director at Heineken UK, said: “We are proud of our long history of supporting the Licensed Trade Charity, as it provides invaluable support to those in the trade that face very difficult circumstances.

“Most recently, we have contributed to the running costs of the LTC’s Helpline, helping to cover the cost of offering guidance and information on a range of issues including housing, state benefits, illness and debt.”

Heineken has also loaned the school a number of artefacts to provide interest and learning to students. This includes the Dr Johnson’s First Edition English Dictionary, which is believed to have been written on the premises of London’s Anchor Brewery.
