Charity Partnership 2016-2018 - Demelza 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.”
Beverley Mackenzie, Business Development Manager at Together for Short Lives said: “We want to say a big thank you to everyone at Hall & Woodhouse who have worked so hard to fundraise for us. We’ve been really impressed with the dedication and support of everyone involved and we’re excited to see what year two of our partnership holds. Their support is vital in helping families facing some of the hardest challenges to get the care and support they need.”
