The group's community services fund has seen the creation on new village stores, libraries and community cinemas across the nation.
Rooney Anand, Greene King's chief executive said: “Pubs play an important role in the community they serve, so it's inspiring to see the ways in which they diversify to offer services that no longer exist in their area.
“Pub is The Hub's Community Services Fund is a valuable way to enable this to happen so locals can still receive these services, such as a post office or library. We are proud that our support has now reached a £100,000 enabling more of these projects to happen.”
