Festive fundraising by landlords at the Sportmans Arms, Tattenhall
SOME festive fundraising helped a village pub raise £285 for charity.
The landlords of the Sportmans Arms in Tattenhall, Terry and Melissa Lumb, put together a series of fundraising events over the Christmas and New Year period for Hope House Children’s Hospices.
The couple opened a Santa’s Grotto over Christmas and asked for donations from parents.
They also invited about 60 children to the premises for a magic show, again collecting donations.
Throughout the Christmas period staff also asked customers to donate to Hope House.
Melissa said: “We were really pleased with how much we raised. Every time we went around the pub with a collection bucket everybody was so generous, and we were thrilled we were able to hand over £285.”
Terry and Melissa chose Hope House Children’s Hospice because the ball held in the village also raised money for the charity.
Terry said: “We felt it was a good idea to raise funds for the same charity.”
Hope House Children’s Hospice looks after terminally ill children and their families. To donate to Hope House, visit www.hopehouse.org.uk.
