Charity Partnership 2016-2018 - Chestnut Tree House
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.”
Terrina Barnes, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Chestnut Tree House said: “We are incredibly grateful for all the hard work Hall & Woodhouse have put in to their fundraising and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved. We rely heavily on the support and generosity of the local community so that we can continue to provide all our specialist care services to children and young people across Sussex, so the support from companies like Hall & Woodhouse is invaluable to us.”
