Lockdown hit communities hard, but for pubs like the Victoria in Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside, it was an opportunity to shine.

Taking the title of Punch Pubs & Co Pub Hero of the Year, in the Great British Pub Awards Pub Heroes 2020, this cracker of a pub rose to the challenge and among many achievements managed to team up with a local food bank to deliver over 12 tonnes of food for free.

The pub also worked with local businesses and managed to source over 2,500 Easter eggs to ensure every child in the local area had their own Easter egg delivered.

To hear more of the Victoria’s amazing story, watch 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.
