Charity first for Neighbourhood winner

19 February, 2010

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

Cheshire wine merchant Corks Out will donate half of the Ł500 prize to Claire House Children’s Hospice, which provides care to children with life?-threatening illnesses on the Wirral, 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 of the Year award in recognition of its service ethic, charity work and collaboration with local businesses.

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