West of England Wine and Spirits Association is an approved programme provider for the WSET in the south west and WSET Bristol

Our Association is proud to support The Benevolent.

 

We support the Wine & Spirit Trades’ Benevolent Society to raise funds for those employed in or retired from the trade who are in unfortunate circumstances. In particular we raise funds at our annual lunch through the ‘guess the port’ completion and other initiatives.

Founded in 1886, The Benevolent’s mission is to help colleagues from the trade facing serious medical or financial hardship or any other workplace or home difficulties. Today The Benevolent continues to be at the heart of the UK drinks industry and is the only charity supporting employees from every sector of the drinks trade, no matter where they were employed or what their personal situation.
