Charity Partnership 2016-2018 - Children's Hospice South West
Public houses from leading independent brewer, Hall & Woodhouse have raised a whopping £116,800 during the first year of their charity partnership with Together for Short Lives, the UK charity for children and young people who are expected to have short lives.
Hall & Woodhouse are now well on the way to reaching their two-year partnership target of £200,000. Dedicated staff from across the business have been pulling out all the stops, taking part in sponsored skydives, sponsored bike rides and holding fundraiser coffee mornings. Hall & Woodhouse have also generously donated proceeds from their annual Great Dorset Beer Festival to the charity total.
Lucinda Gray, sixth-generation Woodhouse family member and Hall & Woodhouse Charity Champion, said: “As a company that places community at the heart of our business, supporting worthy causes is very important to Hall & Woodhouse. The incredible work of Together for Short Lives and the children’s hospices they support touches so many lives and helps so many families, so we are proud to be fundraising for them.”
Janey Hellmen, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at Children’s Hospice South West said: “We want to say a big thank you to the Hall & Woodhouse pubs who have worked so hard to fundraise for us. We’ve been really impressed with the enthusiasm and support of everyone involved. The funds raised by Hall & Woodhouse help us to make the most of short and precious lives across the South West.”
