As the lockdown bit hard into vulnerable members of the community, pubs were fortunately on hand to ensure they were not forgotten and the Fountain Inn at Aberfeldy, Perthshire went above and beyond.

Within hours of being told to shut down, operator Gavin Price and manager Julie Dunbar launched Feldy-Roo, a free food delivery service to vulnerable people over the age of 70 across the area, and quickly built up a team of volunteers to keep the service running.

Deservedly winners of the Greene King Pub Partners Pub Heroes of the Year, the Fountain Inn delivered nearly 40,000 free meals during lockdown.

You can hear more of their story on the video above.

The awards are kindly sponsored by Booker/Makro, Coca-Cola European Partners, Heineken UK, Diageo, Sky, EI Publican Partnerships, Admiral Taverns, Star Pubs & Bars, Punch Pubs & Co and Greene King.
