Hall & Woodhouse Partners With ‘Together For Short Lives’

Leading UK independent brewer, Hall & Woodhouse has chosen Together for Short Lives as its charity partner for the next two years. Together for Short Lives is the leading UK charity for children and young people who are expected to have short lives; providing information, support, resources, research and raising funds for children’s hospice services and other voluntary organisations.  As part of the brewer’s charity fundraising scheme for local communities and working closely with Together for Short Lives, Hall & Woodhouse team members will be actively supporting six children’s hospices across southern England. Each children’s hospice will be supported by nominated Hall & Woodhouse public houses in their area.

Fifty-four Hall & Woodhouse public houses are taking part, with the aim of raising more than £250,000 over two years.  This will be achieved through a number of fund-raising activities organised by local public houses, such as quiz nights, sponsored events, fun days and sports tournaments. All monies raised will help to fund vital care for seriously ill children and provide support for their families.

Lucinda Gray, sixth-generation Woodhouse family member and Hall & Woodhouse Charity Champion, comments: “As a company that places community at the heart of our business, supporting worthy causes is very important to Hall & Woodhouse. The incredible work of Together for Short Lives touches so many lives and helps so many families, so we are proud to have so many of our public houses backing the campaign. Having raised a phenomenal £248,000 for Macmillan in 2013 and 2014, I know our team and guests will do everything we can to exceed that amount over the next two years.”
