An Aberdeen pub has scooped a top award for its work in the community.
The Foundry is owned by Stonegate Pub Company, which won the title of Best Community Pub Operator in the Publican Awards.
This national awards ceremony celebrates everything that’s great about the world of pubs and bars.
The Holburn Street bar is particularly tied to the Aberdeen FC Community Trust.
The trust helps people of all ages, from pre-school to pensioners, by organising activities and support for those with learning difficulties or people diagnosed with dementia.
The pub has done many fundraising events to raise money for the trust, as well as other causes close to the team’s hearts, including taking part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk, raising just under £3,000.
The pub has also partnered with the local Cancer Research shop to run an event for Stand Up to Cancer.
General manager Mark Joseph said: “It was always my plan to make the pub a social hub or community centre and it works brilliantly.
“During the day we have families and pensioners in making the most of our fantastic food offers, and the staff take time out to have a chat with them.
“Twice a month we host a walking group and provide them with free tea, coffee and cake.”
