Hall & Woodhouse to raise £250,000 for children's hospice charity

Published:  04 February, 2016

Family-owned Dorset brewer, Hall & Woodhouse, has partnered with the Together for Short Lives charity to raise £250,000 over the next two years.

Together for Short Lives is dedicated to supporting children and young people with low life expectancy.

It raises funds for children's hospices and other voluntary organisations, as well as providing information and other resources to seriously ill children and their families.

Fifty-four Hall & Woodhouse public houses are taking part in the scheme, which is part of Hall & Woodhouse's wider work with local communities.

They will be raising money through quiz nights, sports tournaments, fun days and a range of other sponsored events.

Hall & Woodhouse team members will also be actively supporting six children's hospices across southern England, with hospice supported by local Hall & Woodhouse pubs.

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 touches so many lives and helps so many families, so we are proud to have so many of our public houses backing the campaign.

Stephen Ballantyne, director of fundraising at Together for Short Lives, said: "We are thrilled that Hall & Woodhouse team members have chosen Together for Short Lives as their charity partner for the next two years.

"It is exciting to be benefiting from what I'm sure will be a fantastic partnership, helping us to raise much-needed funds for thousands of seriously ill children and their families, who rely on the support of their local children's hospice."

Hall & Woodhouse raised £248,000 for its previous charity partner Macmillan in 2013 and 2014.
