On 7th May, Custom Drinks attended the Veteran’s in Action open day to celebrate the opening of the new building as part of the “VIA Alive Centre”. Veterans, their families, and the local community attended the day.
As an ex-Royal Engineer, the charity is close to Mack’s heart. Veterans in Action are a UK based charity that helps veterans who have suffered the effects of war or who have found the transition to civilian life difficult. www.veteransinaction.org.uk
The centre enables veterans to attend a place of safety on a daily basis and all those attending the centre are encouraged to get involved in existing or developing future projects. The centre also enables them to put forward their own ideas and act on them.
With the mayor of Andover in attendance to officially open the building, we convinced her to jump behind the bar and give making cocktails a whirl. She was a natural to say the least!
The day was one of those rare days when it feels as though summer is actually on its way, and cocktails and craft beers were enjoyed in the sunshine. The prosecco cocktails especially went down a treat.
