Guests at the Morning Advertiser’s Great British Pub Awards this week raised a whopping £4,205 for the Community Services Fund.
Following a short presentation by Chief Executive John Longden and a film showing the work of Pub is The Hub, the six hundred guests were asked if they would like to contribute to the Community Services Fund.
John Longden commented: “I cannot believe the generosity of people at the event – many of whom were licensees themselves. The money raised at the event could help as many as four or five licensees to realise their ideas and dreams in supporting their communities.”
