£2000 raised from great south run

31st October 2013

on sunday 27th october, the great south run came to portsmouth.

our manager steve and head chef marco both completed the race, along with a few other members of staff. despite the challenge faced by the heavy winds and oncoming showers, everyone finished in good times.

the week leading up to the race, all the staff were involved in selling raffle tickets to customers, with the chance to win a table for 8 people including a mini wine tasting. amazingly, thanks to staff and customers, £2000 was raised which was split between steve and marco’s chosen charities, seafarers uk and rowans hospice.

the draw was made on the afternoon of the race and the lucky winners are steve & caroline who live locally. they said, “we have never won anything in the past and this will be a great treat for friends and family”

good work all round!
