‪#‎BrewingGood‬! HEINEKEN

Over the past few weeks there's been a #BrewingGood buzz in the head office at Edinburgh Broadway Park as colleagues have been backing the causes they want to support. I'm delighted to let you know that the staff at the Edinburgh Broadway Park office want to back our Summer Programme and are awarding PEP £1,500. We only have another £1,000 to raise. Thanks again to Heineken and their staff for their pledge.

Please spread the word! Thank you.
