Corks Out donates prize money to charity

10 February, 2010

The retailer named Neighbourhood Off-licence of the Year at OLN’s Drinks Retailing Awards is donating its prize money to charity.

Cheshire merchant Corks Out will donate half of the £500 prize to Claire House Children’s Hospice on the Wirral, which provides care to children with life threatening illnesses, and the other half to the Haiti Earthquake Appeal.

Owner Ruth Yates said: “Corks Out has a chosen charity each year, sometimes local, sometimes national. Last year was the British Heart Foundation and the year before was Breast Cancer Research.”

Corks Out won the Neighbourhood Off-licence award in recognition of its “service ethic, charity work and collaboration with local businesses”, which has seen the shop link up with other businesses – including a jeweller, hair salon and florist – to share the cost of attending wedding fairs and similar events, all under a single marketing umbrella.

Stores also provide raffle prizes for local schools and a free delivery service for disabled customers.
