How we support The Farnham Hedgehogs
We are proud to support The Hedgehogs and fundraise on behalf of this incredible charity continue to provide much needed financial support to our local community. We support the charity through a variety of money-raising initiatives including a donation of 20p for every pint of Red Mist ale sold here in the pub, charity penny pots on the bar, hosting pub quizzes and a Christmas jumper night, as well as small ad-hoc events such as donation tables (where we sell bric-a-brac and lost property). Every penny counts and we hope you will help us to raise as much money throughout 2018/19 as possible. Charity really does start at home.
Farnham Hedgehogs pride themselves in their tireless fundraising and long-standing success in organising fun and varied events that will benefit everyone within the local community. In return, those in need (including individuals, single-parent families, local charities and those with disabilities) can benefit from financial support. Events they organise and host throughout the year include the annual Farnham carnival, the ‘I love Farnham’ calendar, organised golf days, quiz nights, motoring events, sponsored swims, local fayres, the Frensham sponsored horse ride and much more. Last year alone they raised over £75,000 of which every penny gets distributed within the local area.
Established in 1955, The Hedgehogs is now a 50+ team of volunteers who give up their time on a regular basis. Stirling work has been undertaken by members and their wives in running bric-a -brac, nearly new clothing sales, bookstalls, skittles and coconut shy’s at village fetes and other such events which have provided a steady income to their charity giving. More recently they have added a monthly Jazz Cafe at the Maltings, Farnham to their regular event list, which sits alongside their hiring of marquees, tables, chairs and erection service, which is extremely popular and a terrific revenue stream.
Red Mist Ale
We have teamed up with the award-winning Tilford Brewery to create our own recipe ale, Red Mist, and we donate 20p from every pint sold here at The Duke to The Farnham Hedgehogs. So when you take a sip, you’re also doing your bit for charity!
