Joint effort raises £250

The Hare and Hounds pub in Sonning Common raised £250 for Sue Ryder in nine weeks

The Hare and Hounds pub in Sonning Common raised £250 for Sue Ryder in nine weeks from its regular meat draw in which customers pay £1 for a chance to win a hamper of meat from a local butcher. The draw will continue over the course of the next year in support of Brakspear’s new partnership with Sue Ryder. Licensees Michael and Claire Sugg said: “We are delighted at the success of our meat draw. Our customers really enjoy it and to raise this amount of money for Sue Ryder is fantastic. Over the next year we have some really exciting plans, including a wheelchair pool tournament tomorrow (Saturday). Entry is £5 of which £2.50 will go to Sue Ryder. One of our regular customers lives his day-to-day life in a wheelchair and he loves his pool. He wanted to challenge other customers at pool while they play sitting in a wheelchair.” Mrs Sugg also took part in the charity’s recent Starlight Hike 10km walk and she and her team of four are on target to raise £400 for the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed. Tracey Hancock, head of fund-raising at Sue Ryder, said: “We are very grateful for their support.”
