Our Sites

We’ve over 2,300 colleagues in the UK across eight different communities including breweries, cider plants and offices. We’re a big part of these communities both as a major local employer and business and often, at our breweries and cider mills, as a visible presence.

We want to invest in the change our colleagues and neighbours believe will make their communities better places to live and to work. By supporting local projects which respond to local needs, we help to tackle a wide range of social issues beyond alcohol misuse - from working with local dads in Moss Side to take on gang violence, to initiating a community day in Ledbury to bring local groups and societies together.

Bulmer Foundation

Bulmer Foundation

The Bulmer Foundation has been promoting sustainable development in Herefordshire for many years. HEINEKEN provides the core annual funding of the running and management of the foundation, which allows them to support a wide range of community projects including Orchard Art, a creative project which uses the tranquillity of orchards to help adults with learning disabilities enjoy the great outdoors.

Community Foundations

Community Foundations

We work with Community Foundations across the country to identify and support local projects that encourage health, well-being and self confidence through education training and physical activity.

We focus on supporting projects that encourage community pride, strengthen networks and bring different parts of the community together.

HEINEKEN Fundraising Campaigns

HEINEKEN Fundraising Campaigns

We want to inspire and motivate our colleagues and engage them in our charitable giving by running fundraising campaigns across multiple sites. We try to support a wide range of good causes – whether that’s hosting a coffee morning at each of our sites for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, or challenging our Scottish colleagues to walk, run or cycle a mile for the STV Appeal.

Colleague Fundraising

Colleague Fundraising

Every year our colleagues from across the business run, swim, cycle, bake and take on mountains to raise tens of thousands of pounds for charities close to their hearts – from Shelter, to Diabetes UK, to local cricket clubs. We support their incredible efforts by providing match-funding for fundraising activity and through the Give As You Earn scheme.
