The Bevy is a Community Benefit Society, owned by and run for the benefit of the local community and not for profit. Any extra income generated by the pub is reinvested in our community, but the majority of the funds for our community activities (like Family Fun Days and supporting Friday Friends) come from generous grants and donations.

Following the Government’s advice on the Covid 19 Virus, we have taken the difficult decision to close the pub, so we will have no income over the bar. However our purpose is to support the local community, and we know that we provide a lifeline for many across Moulsecoomb and Bevendean. So we are looking for ways to deal with the challenges that vulnerable people are facing in this really difficult situation. Part of that has been establishing ‘Bevy Meals on Wheels’, where nutritious hot food is prepared in the Bevy kitchen and safely delivered by volunteers who check in on people, have a chat (at a safe distance) and run any errands that might need doing.

By donating to the pub you are supporting us to help our community over the coming weeks and months. Whilst much of our work is volunteer run and we source food and equipment from donations wherever possible, we still have costs around delivery, coordination, chef time, and especially the hygiene requirements to keep everybody safe. Any donations you can give the Bevy now will be massively appreciated, or please email to volunteer your time.

  • £10 would cover the costs of providing two hot, two course meals for one vulnerable person.
  • £100 would pay for 20 meals for vulnerable people.
  • and £1000 should cover the costs of the volunteers’ hygiene needs including hand sanitiser for two months.
