What a result!
As many of you were aware, throughout December we were very busy fundraising for our partner charity Albion in the Community.
During the festive period we asked our generous customers for a discretionary £2 donation on every food bill, raised funds at our Christmas Carols Evening and donated the proceeds from general admission tickets to our New Year’s Eve party.
We are now delighted to announce that we raised an extraordinary £4000 in total.
This is a fantastic new year’s boost for the charity who deliver high-quality, accessible opportunities to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community. The charity runs more than 30 sessions for people with disabilities and provides free weekly football and mentoring sessions for young people living in areas of deprivation. Each session costs between £2500 and £5000 a year to run so fundraising initiatives such as these really help them to make all the amazing work they do possible.
The pub and the charity started their long-term partnership in December 2018 and since then we have hosted various fundraising events. These included us partaking in the charity’s ‘Blue and White day’ in March where we raised funds through baking cakes and holding a raffle supported by local businesses. The pub also hosted a ‘Meet the Legends Night’ in October where they held a ticketed question and answer session with Guy Butters and Danny Cullip which was thoroughly enjoyed by Albion fans and admirers of the veteran players.
On behalf of everyone here at The Bull and the team at Albion in the Community we would like to thank each and every one of you who have helped us raise money for the charity this year. We are extremely proud of what we have achieved and this would not be possible without your incredible kindness and generosity.
