BRAKSPEAR pubs are hoping to raise £50,000 for Sue Ryder
BRAKSPEAR pubs are hoping to raise £50,000 for Sue Ryder.
Licencees are being asked to organise one fund-raising event over the next 12 months as part of a new partnership between the Henley-based pub company and brewer and the charity?s hospice in Nettlebed.
Brakspear is offering prizes for the pub that raises the most money and for the most creative fund-raising ideas.
Chief executive Tom Davies said: ?Many of our pubs are already huge supporters of Sue Ryder thanks to the charity?s strong presence locally.
?Formalising that support with this partnership enables us to help those pubs to raise more money and encourage more licensees to get behind this very worthy charity.
?Sue Ryder does tremendous work to help people going through unimaginable distress and I?m sure that many Brakspear pubs will have a member of staff or a customer who has been touched by them at some point.
?We are confident our licensees and their teams will rise to this challenge with enthusiasm and creativity and we look forward to watching them raise money while also reinforcing their pub?s place at the heart of the local community.?
Hospice director Stewart Marks said: ?We are very much looking forward to working with this renowned brewery.
?The money Brakspear?s pubs are going to raise over the next year is vital to the services we provide here in the local community.
?A total of £50,000 will pay for 100 days of hospice care.?
