Spartan march raises over £73.5k

Managers and staff from Stonegate pubs have been celebrating an extraordinary summer of fundraising, which saw them collect over £73,500 for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

The company’s premises across the southern region came together to raise the cash in just a few months. They did this through events ranging from beach parties to beard growing, culminating in a 12.5-mile march from Bexleyheath to the City by 300 managers and team members, all decked out in Spartan regalia.

Organisers of the Spartan walk; Stonegate Area Manager, Adam Stothart and Pub Manager, Cee-Jay Williams, along with Stonegate Operations Director Colin Hawkins presented a cheque to Noah’s Ark on Wednesday 4 October.

Adam Stothart said: “From the second Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice presented to us, it was a unanimous decision for us to support them. The work they do really is heartening. The pubs have had some terrific fun whilst raising the profile of both Noah’s Ark and the positive effect pubs have in supporting their communities.”

Noah’s Ark Community Fundraiser, Daisy Wilson thanked Stonegate for the amazing effort: “The amount that Stonegate pubs have raised in such a short space of time is tremendous and will contribute hugely to the funds required for to our community-based hospice services.

“We have just launched our Building The Ark campaign to construct North and Central London’s first children’s hospice building, complementing our existing Hospice-at-Home services. It’s therefore an incredibly exciting time to be working with Stonegate, as we move towards completing our circle of care for the families we support.”
