A second batch of wellbeing packs is now on offer to support workers during the coronavirus pandemic

The packs contain food and store-cupboard essentials and are available from Speciality Drinks' website to those in hospitality who find themselves out of work or struggling day-to-day. An initial 1,000 packs were ready to send at the end of March, but a new batch is now ready for those who missed out the first time.

Spirits distributor Edrington-Beam Suntory UK has provided the funding to support the initiative.

'We have worked with the team at Edrington-Beam Suntory UK to create these wellbeing packs to support the members of the hospitality industry, a group who are at the heart of our businesses,' said Jen Baernreuther, sales director at Speciality Drinks. 'With our industry temporarily shut down it feels like a very uncertain time for everyone, and we’ve chosen the contents of the packs to lend a little support to those who need it, helping them to stay stocked up on essentials during this time.'

Rajbir Singh, co-founder of Speciality Drinks, added: 'Covid-19 has left people vulnerable in our industry – an industry that has supported us as we’ve grown as a company. We see those working for licensed businesses as part of our family and we want them to know that they are not alone, and that we will do as much as we can to help them to take care of themselves and their families.'

Anyone working for a licensed hospitality business in the UK is eligible. Get your wellbeing parcel here.
