Why not ask your lovely local landlord to support our charity?

If you just ask… who knows where it may lead!

We have always said, if you ask a pub or restaurant to donate a gift to someone affected by cancer they most probably will!

We recently asked at one of our local pubs, The Petersfield (Cambridge), and landlord Ben was so impressed with the ethos of the charity that the pub is not only now donating a variety of gifts on a regular basis, but he also mentioned the charity to his Area Manager and we now look forward to partnering with many more of ‘The City Pub Group’s’ establishments in the near future.
