With the right support on Crowdfunder, Craddock’s brewery will open Brum’s first charity supporting not-for-profit bar In the Victorian splendour of The Great Western Arcade in the city centre. Every three months the bar will nominate a charity to support. You’ll be able to taste the world becoming a better place with every gulp, with all profits – expected to be about 10% of each sale – going to the nominated charities. They’re hoping that coud be as much as £150,000 donated annually.
The team is headed by David Craddock, a publican since the age of 21 who heads a company with four award-winning pubs and two breweries in the Black Country, Worcestershire and Shropshire. David is set to expand in a more altruistic direction through the Good Intent, and he has brought together a team of like-minded friends to help bring his vision to life. Craddock’s intends to generate additional funds for the selected charity by showcasing events focusing upon music, food, drinks and the arts.
There are private pledges of over £150,000 already in place for the venue, and now they need your help. They need to raise a further £80,000 in order to complete the refurbishments of the venue to an excellent standard, and to ensure the bar is ready to serve the city and community as quickly as possible when the doors first open.
