Denholme Pub joins initiative to raise vital funds for lifesaving charity
The Royal Public House Pub in Denholme has joined the Children’s Air Ambulance’s (TCAA) Pub Club initiative to support the lifesaving missions for critically ill babies and children across the UK, as the charity celebrates 10 years of vital service.
The charity’s initiative, Pub Club, brings together landlords, breweries and pub visitors to give them a place to fundraise through a whole host of means such as quizzes, games tournaments, family fun days and themed evenings in support of the national lifesaving charity. All participants get full support from a dedicated Community Fundraising Executive in their local area, as well as bespoke collateral to help promote their involvement and support for the charity.
The new landlords of The Royal Public House, Jenny and Sid, decided to renovate the pub in Denholme, bringing the 1800’s building back to life. Since opening on 29 September 2023, they have decided to join the charity’s Pub Club, helping to support the Children’s Air Ambulance and their vital missions for critically ill babies and children across the UK.
Landlady Jenny Clarke said: “Both myself and my partner decided to join Pub Club to support the amazing charity as this is something very close to our hearts. We know how terrifying it is when your child needs help and how they can be saved by faster travel. We cannot wait to help support such an important cause.”
The Children’s Air Ambulance is changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the high-speed transfer of critically ill babies and children – flying them from one hospital to another for specialist care via the clinically designed helicopters, which provide a flying intensive care unit for babies and children.
“We are so happy to have The Royal Public House as part of our Pub Club fundraising initiative. This is a fun way to not only support our lifesaving service but to also get the community involved to showcase how local pubs really are at the heart of a community,” said Sharon Evans, Community Fundraising Executive for the Children’s Air Ambulance.
“We don’t receive National Lottery or government funding, so rely entirely on voluntary donations and support from local communities and businesses. Support through initiatives such as this keep the lifesaving service operational,” she added.
The charity is celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing lifesaving high-speed transfers for critically ill babies and children in 2023 and is encouraging people to visit a charity store and grab a bargain, donate unwanted clothing to one of many clothing banks, get involved in a challenge event, fundraise, or even sign up to volunteer.
