A newsagent chain has teamed up with the Castle Rock brewery to offer home booze deliveries across Gedling borough, with funds going to help secure the future of Carlton Town during the coronavirus crisis.
MSR Newsgroup, which has a store in Arnold town centre, has launched a beer delivery partnership with Castle Rock and promise to deliver beers within 24 hours of ordering.
MSR managing director and Carlton Town FC chairman Mick Garton told the club’s website that his company will continue to sponsor and support the Millers and ‘providing they come through the current coronavirus crisis intact’.
The club has suffered a massive loss of income with the season being brought to a premature end due to the virus outbreak.
Mr Garton said the beer delivery service is providing a much-needed boost to his business, which has also been heavily impacted by the lockdown.
Mr Garton said: “MSR have lost over 300 business accounts at the moment and I’ve had to close three of our six stores and the overall income has collapsed, but the beer delivery partnership set up with Castle Rock is proving one of the few success stories during these horrendous times.
MSR is now asking Carlton fans to support them and in return, when this is over, ‘fully intend to renew their commitment to the football club for next season.’
Castle Rock products are delivered free of charge and all other products are delivered free of charge providing order is £30 or over.
The minimum delivery value is £20 and orders between £20 and £30 excluding Castle Rock products will incur a £2 delivery charge.
Orders can be placed by e mail at [email protected] or by telephoning either 0115 9581735 or 0115 9208791.
