Pub fundraises in memory of dear friend

01 September 2021 chsw Fundraising

The Stonemasons pub in Ilminster recently handed over a cheque for £342.30 to Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW). 

Manager Dan Cutts said: “We chose Children's Hospice South West as one of our team members Jade had a dear friend called Rosemary Reid who always supported the children's hospice at any events she did. Rosemary recently held a garden party and raised a lot of money. Unfortunately, soon after that event she passed away, so this was very much in memory of her.”

The Stonemasons’ fundraising took place just as Covid restrictions began to lift on July 19. Dan said: “We had events all week from a pool competition, a quiz, bingo and finally a family fun day on the Sunday.”

Julie Draper, Area Fundraiser at CHSW, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who organised and participated in the week-long fundraising. It was a lovely tribute to Rosemary who held our cause very close to her heart.”
