Frederic Robinson Brewery
William Robinson, Managing Director of Frederic Robinson Brewery said: “Beer and pubs have always had an important role to play – especially for our troops. As an essential morale booster during times of war and conflict beer was never rationed; Churchill himself mandated that every fighting man at the front must receive eight pints a week. Today, the beer and pub sector supports almost 1 million UK jobs and here at Robinsons we have a number of ex. service men and women running our pubs and essentially ‘serving' their communities, in place of 'serving' their 'country'. Walk on Wales is a fantastic way to help raise money for soldiers and their families who have been affected by the devastating impact of active service and I’m sure it will appeal to the public’s sense of national pride. There is a real feel good factor about sponsoring this campaign and the fact that participants will pass a number of Robinsons pub en route and hopefully pop in to enjoy the hospitality they offer at the same time really hits the spot.”

Priory Group Chief Executive Tom Riall comments: “The Priory Group of Companies is very proud to take part in and support Walk on Wales.
As an organisation, we are dedicated to helping people improve their health and wellbeing, and we offer a network of over 275 facilities and 7,000 beds to support service users’ health, care, education and specialised needs. We are delighted to be sponsoring and taking part in this venture, which will raise money for the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal, and for Combat Stress, which does so much in caring for the mental health needs of some of our Service Veterans.
I look forward to joining a team of Priory Group colleagues to walk leg 11 of Walk on Wales, from 30 October until 2 November”.
