This Christmas, with the help of our generous guests, we hope to raise as much money as we can during the busy party season for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), who provide specialist care for children and young people with life threatening conditions.
As part of our Giving Tree fundraising (an initiative started in April 2020) we are committed to supporting local charities and Christmas feels an especially poignant time to help those less fortunate.
EACH have hospices in three of the four counties where our pubs are situated and offer many different types of care for young people, as well as providing a safe and supportive environment for their families.
EACH Events Fundraiser Hannah Forbester said, “We are thrilled and incredibly grateful for this support in the run-up to Christmas, as we rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income." This year EACH hope to raise £12.3 million from donations and their shops. The year before the pandemic they received just 16% of their total income from statutory sources.
To support with the fundraising, £1 will be added to guests bills when dining with us in December. The money raised will help fund specialist nursing care, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling for those families that need it most.
If you would like to find out more about the incredible work that EACH do, take a look at their website https://www.each.org.uk/
Reserve a table with us or pop by for a drink this festive period to help in our fundraising.
