Community Pub Hero Awards

Our Community Pub Hero Awards and reward those pubs who go the extra mile to support their local communities and raise money for charity.

Every year, PubAid runs a competition to recognise and reward those pubs who go the extra mile to support their local communities and raise money for charity. The Community Pub Hero Awards are sponsored by Matthew Clark and supported by the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group.

This year, we’re expanding the competition, creating separate awards for Community Support Pub Hero, Charity Fundraising Pub Hero and a new Community Regular Hero award for a pub customer or group of regulars who help with a pub’s good works.

Entering your pub is easy and free of charge. You’ll find the criteria for each award below, please read this and then enter the one that best suits your pub: we know some of you will be raising money for charity AND supporting your community – but please enter just one category. You can of course nominate a Community Regular Hero additionally. Please enter before the deadline of 31 October.

After the closing date we will review all entries and select finalists in each category. They will be invited, with their MP, to a reception in London early next year, where we will present them with a certificate before announcing the overall winners.

We look forward to receiving your entry for the Community Pub Hero Awards 2022!

Community Regular Hero

Recognising an individual or group of customers who help the pub’s fundraising efforts or its work to support the community. They often take on thankless tasks for little reward, so if you have a loyal regular who has helped your pub to help others locally, then nominate them for this award.

Community Support Pub Hero

Recognising licensees who help their communities. Many pubs offered vital support during lockdown: delivering supplies or cooking hot meals for vulnerable residents, or keeping people connected through online quizzes or chats. If your pub is a ‘good neighbour’ to your local community, then this award is for you.

Charity Fundraising Pub Hero

Recognising pubs who support charities and other good causes through fundraising. This can be through a collection tin on the bar, charity events ranging from quizzes or auctions through to fun days, or sponsored challenges by the licensee, team members or pub customers.
