Headway & Five Points : A New Partnership
Read all about our new partnership with The Five Points Brewing Company as Headway East London becomes one of their charities of 2018
As part of our mission to foster community spirit and develop relationships with local businesses, this January, Headway East London reached out to our Hackney neighbour, The Five Points Brewing Company, to see how we could work together. As a result, we are thrilled to announce that they have chosen us as one of two charities they will support in 2018! With an ethos akin to ours, The Five Points Brewing Company prides itself on its commitment to the community, and of course delicious beers. Through charitable events, brewery tours, donations and promotion, The Five Points will support Headway as one of their charity partners of 2018.
Born and bred in Hackney, Five Points is an independent brewery that started its journey in 2013. Champions of flavour, provenance and consistency; their range of award-winning beers are unfiltered and unpasteurised. Five Points strives to be a responsible business; sourcing the electricity for their brewhouse from 100% renewable sources and running an apprenticeship scheme for 18-24 year olds in Hackney. They were the first brewery in the UK to be an accredited Living Wage Employer and are proud to pay the London Living Wage.
'As a local, Hackney-based business, supporting and investing in our local community around us has always been incredibly important, ever since we began brewing in 2013.'
On our new partnership, The Five Points commented:
'We are incredibly pleased to choose Headway East London as one of our charity partners for 2018. As a local, Hackney-based business, supporting and investing in our local community around us has always been incredibly important, ever since we began brewing in 2013. Five years on, our founders are still based in Hackney and many of our 30 staff members call East London home, too. Working with Headway East London this year will enable us to have an input into the charity's fantastic work in supporting members of our community with brain injuries.'
