As part of a family that is passionate about the authentic pub experience, we believe that being part of the local community is key to achieving this.
That’s why we like to support the local community; helping to promote and support local events, fundraising for local charities and building relationships with fellow groups, teams and businesses in the area…
Local Food and Drink
We are dedicated to sourcing from British farmers and producers and using only sustainable ingredients, so we work hard to build great working relationships with our suppliers, from the gin in our G&Ts and the perfectly cooked steak on your plate, to the oil in your salad and the ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth.
We are also proud members of Surrey Hills, further championing local ingredients and working together with the county to promote local ingredients and fantastic talent this county has to offer.
Here at The Duke of Cambridge, we are proud supporters of the Farnham Hedgehogs, helping raise funds for the important work that they do to support the local community who are in need of financial support. Benefactors include individuals, single-parent families, local charities and much more.
A registered charity, established over 55 years ago, The Hedgehogs is a 50-strong team whose mission is to benefit the local community of Farnham and its surrounding areas. Monies are raised through the team’s tireless efforts throughout the year in organising and managing social events for the local people; every single penny is then distributed out to those in need.
Last year alone, the charity raised over £75,000. During the course of 2017, 55 separate donations were made to local charities and worthy causes including the Farnham Community Hopper Bus. Additionally, 20+ donations were made to local individuals in need, which continues to be a key element of The Hedgehogs mantra. Monies raised were in no small part due to The Hedgehogs being recognised and nominated by various organisations and shops within the town as their local charity. This has resulted in The Hedgehogs now being more prominent, acknowledged and respected for what they represent to the Town of Farnham and surrounding areas.
The major fundraising activities they organise and manage to raise these funds include The Farnham Motoring Revival, The I Love Farnham Calendar, Sponsored Charity Swim, Golf Day, Marquee and Equipment Hire and a Hedgehogs Quiz Night. We hope you will help us to continue in raising awareness and funds, which gets ploughed back into the local area… as they say, charity really must start at home.
