Charity of the Year

Did you know all our pubs are dog friendly?

We believe pubs are at the heart of every community and we aim to build and nurture these relationships through everything we do. As the Island’s largest private sector employer, we understand the importance of giving back to our local community and place our charity activities as a top priority.

We are delighted that our nominated charity this year is Guide Dogs.

We want to support a charity with a positive, life-changing impact and the guide dog service does just that, transforming the lives of more than 10,000 blind and partially sighted people every year.

As such, we want to raise £30,000 to name and sponsor the training of 3 guide dog puppies.

The money raised will give us the privilege of naming three guide dog puppies. We will also receive individual updates on their progress through training as well as photographs from birth to qualification as a guide dog. It takes around 20 months to transform a tiny puppy into a confident guide dog, and we, and our customers, can proudly follow them every step of the way.

How much we’ve raised so far… 

A huge thank you to all of our customers who have contributed to our fundraising efforts so far. We’re happy to announce that our total to date is a whopping £41,395, which means we were able to sponsor a third guide dog Cooper to join Brearley and Amber on their journeys to becoming fully trained Guide Dogs!
