Community and Charity

Pubs have always been a focal point of any community – and we aim to continue that tradition by supporting and building relationships across the local area.

A positive effect on the local community

Research by the data and research consultancy CGA (published in June 2018) has shown that a Wetherspoon pub more often has a positive, rather than negative, effect on the local area and can stimulate general local interest in eating out. A full copy of the report is available here.

Pub design and facilities

The company has won a number of awards for pub design and community facilities over the years. Details of the most recent ones are available here.

Public access defibrillators

Public access defibrillators have been installed in 20 pubs[1] and the ‘Wethercentre’ (head office, Watford) for use by the wider community. Most of these are sited on an external wall, although some are currently inside the building. Following feedback from our employees and customers, we have committed to install public access defibrillators, by July 2020, in as many of our pubs as possible.

Charity fundraising

UK nominated charity – CLIC Sargent

The company’s UK nominated charity is CLIC Sargent, which supports children and young people with cancer. Since our partnership began in 2002, Wetherspoon has raised over £17.5 million for the charity. This achievement is thanks to the generosity and commitment of our customers and employees. Those funds raised more recently are detailed below, by year.

The Royal British Legion poppy appeal

Our pubs continue to support the Royal British Legion poppy appeal, selling poppies and raising around £25,000 per year.

FareShare is the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste. FareShare saves good food from going to waste and redistributes it to frontline charities. Since working with FareShare, Wetherspoon has donated, on average, over 300 meals a week to the charity.

Local charities

Collectively, our pubs have also donated to local and other charities and organisations, including the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Supporting customers with disabilities

The company works with the charity Changing Places, which supports people with physical disabilities (such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis) who may need extra facilities or space to allow them to use the toilet safely and comfortably. Changing Places toilets are different from standard accessible toilets (or disabled toilets) and larger to meet the needs of those who use them. We have built Changing Places toilets in 11 pubs[2], providing these facilities for disabled customers and their carers.

We have teamed up with Good Food Talks to make it easier for our visually impaired customers to browse through the menu at their local Wetherspoon. The organisation (goodfoodtalks.com) enhances facilities for the blind and visually impaired, when dining out, as well as for those with other reading difficulties, allowing browsing and listening to the menu through a fully accessible website and iOS mobile app.

Working in partnership with Mencap, we provide work placements in our pubs for those with learning difficulties.

We support the Not Every Disability is Visible campaign, highlighting the stigma and misunderstanding which can surround those with invisible disabilities, including Crohn’s or colitis.
