North has teamed up with a group of our friends across the UK beer scene to offer the chance to buy a pint for the NHS.

The pandemic on our doorstep has forced us all into lockdown and thrust our NHS onto the front-line. We wanted to find a way to support them through this crisis: As small, independent brewing businesses, we don’t have an abundance of PPE or raw materials to donate, however we do have beer.

With that in mind, we landed on a simple idea: With your help, we can get a drink into the hands of someone who’s really earned it – our NHS staff. If you buy the NHS a “pint” on any participating brewery’s web-shop, we’ll make sure that a drink gets into the hands of a well deserving NHS worker once we come off lockdown. They are true heroes and deserve to be rewarded once this crisis has passed. It’s a Pay it Forward scheme that will benefit small business as well as those that deserve our thanks.

We have tried to geographically represent the country so you can give to the area where you most want to support NHS staff in a post-pandemic world:

Each “Buy the NHS a Pint” bought on any of our web-shops will be forwarded to our taprooms. As soon as we’re open again anyone from the NHS and by extension any volunteer signed up to help, can pop in, show their ID and redeem their drink. Here at North we will be extending our tabs across the North Bar family so that NHS workers in Harrogate, Otley, Oakwood, Meanwood, Chapel Allerton and Leeds City Centre can claim their pint.

Thank you in advance for supporting this cause – if you’re considering placing an order for our beer, please think about adding a pint for hardworking NHS staff. Together we’re stronger and we will get through this. In the meantime: Stay safe. Stay Home. Stay positive, and save lives.
