Community matters to us
Our pubs and inns are at the heart of their communities but to us that means more than just location.
We’re pleased to support our local community champions doing their bit to improve people’s lives and also to do what we can ourselves to make a difference to those around us.
See some of our current initiatives below:

Community Fund

We have a fund set aside for community or charitable purposes and each year we’re able to make contributions to help improve lives in our local community.

Please understand that we have a limit to what we are able to commit and all requests are considered on an individual basis.

If you are aware of a local charity, individual or cause who may benefit from our support, then please complete our funding application form (PDF) or here in Word format and email it finance[at]ospreyinns.co.uk (or email us if you have enquiries about this process) and we will see if we can help.
