Micro pub gives massive support!
The Copper Pottle, a micro pub in Beltinge have been avid supporters of Strode for seven years. In that time their customers and staff have raised a staggering £21,000 for the children, young people, and adults with disabilities in Strode Park Foundation’s care.
Gary and Gavin have used their micro pub as a fabulous spot to fundraise. The pub holds regular Quiz nights and raffles in aid of Strode Park and they even managed to fundraise during the pandemic.
The pub that is only 4.5m X 9m in size may be small, but they have been mighty fundraisers for Strode Park Foundation. As they approach their 7th year of support, the pair aimed to raise a target of £21,000 by the end of June 2022. However, by the end of May they smashed that target and have raised a whopping £21, 021.12.
Gavin said: “We have carried on our support for the last 7 years because Strode Park is local to us and we wanted to support a local charity. There have been a few issues with covid making it difficult to raise money but we are glad we still managed to reach our target and help a local cause”
The pair will be celebrating in style along with their loyal customers at a BBQ on July 17 in the pub’s garden. Make sure to stop by and help support.
Chief Executive of Strode Park Foundation, Paul Montgomery said, “£21,000 in seven years is a massive achievement. Gary and Gavin have worked so hard to raise money for our services for children, young people and adults with disabilities and we cannot thank them enough for their support.”
The two landlords have no plans to slow down their fundraising. After seven years of support they are as keen as ever to continue to raise funds for the charity with the help of their wonderful customers. With regular quiz nights and raffles and other events that you can attend, this is a great spot to enjoy meeting new people, have a drink and support Strode Park.
