How to make a Contribution
The Bevy has been set up to recognise the significant contribution that our supporters and benefactors have made to this ground breaking project. Members will receive regular news and updates, as well as access to occasional offers and promotions.
Once the pub is back up and running properly, post-Covid and with a functioning kitchen we aim to bring our Bevy Members additional benefits. We’ll let you know when these occur.
Bevy Members are those:
- who have invested, loaned or donated funds to The Swan, and
- a small number of specially invited volunteers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
As well as confirming your Founder Member status, being part of The Bevy will give you:
- Occasional discounts off promotional products.
- Regular news updates on our future plans.
- Attendance at the Swan Clewer CIC AGM.
- Invitation to a special pre-opening Bevy members event.

Make a Financial Contribution
Financial donations are very welcome and most certainly help us fund the materials and speicalist labour that we require to renovate the pub. The generosity of the local community and our wider supporters has been overwhelming and very appreciated by us. If you would like to make a donation, there are two ways. But first, a huge thank you in advance.
Firstly you can use PayPal. This is a secure mechanism for transferring funds to us. Please note that PayPal will take 2.5&percent; as a commision charge for the transaction.
Alternatively you can get in touch with the Richard Douglas, our Secretary, and he will make direct arrangements with you either as cash or as a bank transfer. To get in touch, please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Amazon Wishlist is currently closed. It will be re-opening when we need to stock the kitchen with cutlery, crockery, pans, utensils, etc. Please watch this space.
We would like to thank everyone that has previously bought 'Wishlist Items' to support the renovation work going on at the pub. Without your invaluable contributions we would not be at the stage we are at today.
