A vote from team members, selected Together for Short Lives as the new charity partner for the next two years. The partnership aims to raise £250,000, and make a huge difference to the lives of seriously ill children and their families across southern England. Fifty-four Hall & Woodhouse public houses are taking part, raising funds and awareness for six local children’s hospices. Fundraising activities will include quiz nights, cake bakes, beer festivals, skydives, and much much more. To launch the partnership, all fifty-four public houses will be taking part in PubAid, the world’s biggest quiz. The six children’s hospices directly benefiting from the partnership are:

Lucinda Gray, sixth-generation Woodhouse family member and Hall & Woodhouse Charity Champion, commented: “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.”
