A hundred and fifty pubs are embarking on a fundraising journey into the City of London on 30th July in aid of Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.
Decked out in Spartan regalia, 300 managers and team members from Stonegate Pub Company’s Southern region will set off at 1:00pm on the 12.5-mile walk from the Danson Stables in Bexleyheath, taking the London Road into the City and arriving at The Alice in Houndsditch some six hours or so later.
Adam Stothart, Stonegate Area Manager and organiser said, “We see the tremendous amount of courage these young children have in fighting life-limiting conditions and thought it appropriate to honour that bravery by dressing as Spartans. We will also be fundraising en route to add to the sponsorship money our teams across the south have already raised.”
Daisy Wilson from Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice said, “We are delighted that the Stonegate pubs in the south have chosen Noah’s Ark as the beneficiary for their fundraising. It is through support and donations that we help to ensure families are able to live life as fully as possible by providing support for those who have children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.”
The Spartans are looking to raise over £100,000. Donations can be made at
