BRAKSPEAR pubs will be “Wearing It Yellow” this month in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The focus of the fund- raising is next Saturday, March 21, when landlords and their staff will wear something yellow and donate £2 to the charity.

Customers will be encouraged to make a donation in return for a Marie Curie  daffodil.

A number of pubs are planning other activities such as baking yellow cakes and staging live music, quiz nights or darts matches.

Brakspear will reward the pub raising the most money with a free firkin of Brakspear bitter.



Emma Sweet, marketing manager for the pub company, said: “We’ve never united behind one charity before, although many of our pubs raise impressive sums for worthy causes throughout the year.

“Marie Curie is a wonderful charity whose work will have touched many of our customers, so we’re confident that they will want to support it.”

Pubs taking part include the Angel on the Bridge, Bull on Bell Street, Row Barge, Station House, Little Angel and Three Horseshoes, all in Henley; the Bull, Wargrave; Cherry Tree, Stoke Row; Clifton Arms, Caversham; Fox & Hounds, Christmas Common; John Barleycorn, Goring; and the Unicorn, Kingwood.
