We take action now to protect wildlife and wild habitats.


Shepherd Neame has named Kent Wildlife Trust as its Charity of the Year for 2022.

Based in Sandling, Maidstone, Kent Wildlife Trust (KWT) is the county’s leading conservation charity. KWT manage over 80 nature reserves across Kent, ensuring the landscape is protected and enhanced for wildlife. This year, KWT is preparing for several ground-breaking reintroduction projects in Kent with species such as bison, beavers, chough and pine martens. KWT is also paving the way for carbon lock-up and native habitat restoration with these nationally
important but locally delivered projects which protect threatened land and seascapes across the county.

It is Shepherd Neame’s third Charity of the Year partnership following the relaunch of its Sheps Giving charitable arm in 2018. The company’s Sheps Giving committee co-ordinates the donation of thousands of pounds worth of beer each year, along with vouchers for its pub and hotel estate, to local groups and individuals in support of their fundraising activities.

The Sheps Giving committee will be working with Kent Wildlife Trust to organise fundraising and promotional activities at the brewery and across its pub estate throughout the next 12 months. 

As part of its fundraising activities, last year Shepherd Neame teamed up with Pennies, the digital charity box. Customers drinking and dining at selected pubs are invited to make a 25 pence donation to charity when they spend over £30 and pay on a card via Chip & Pin. Every penny given goes to charity: 90% to Kent Wildlife Trust and 10% to Pennies.

Wildlife is in crisis. The natural world isn't just something for us to enjoy; it sustains us. The decline of nature puts our very survival and prosperity under threat. It doesn't have to be like this. Together we can take the nature and climate crises, together we can create a Wilder Kent.
