The Royal Oak, located on the High Street in Nailsea, has raised £861 at its Family Fun Day for local charity, Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
Held in August, the Family Fun Day was a huge success and saw locals enjoying a barbeque, bouncy castle, reptile show, music, outside bar, tombola, face painting, stalls and a sweet shop.
Landlady Gemma Mamo and the Royal Oak team visited CHSW’s Charlton Farm in Wraxall on one of its monthly Open Days to present the funds.
Gemma said afterwards: “Thank you to everyone who came along and helped us support such a worthy cause. It was a fantastic day at the Royal Oak and we’re really excited to do another event in future to support the hospice as well. All the team worked really hard to make the day a success but we couldn’t have done it without our customers’ generosity. Thank you to everyone who got involved on the day and made it happen.”
Emma Parker, Community Fundraiser at CHSW said: “We are so grateful for the support of the community of Nailsea. Gemma and the team at the Royal Oak brought everyone together for a day of family entertainment whilst also raising vital funds and awareness of the local children’s hospice, which supports over 220 families from across North Somerset and beyond.”
Charlton Farm opens its doors once a month to people in the community wanting to find out more about the care and support it provides to local children and families. Visits can be made by appointment only here.
