How we support Piggles Trust
We are proud to support local charity, Piggles Trust, and raise money to help this incredible cause with its aim to provide pre-school education to poorly children and their siblings, within a hospital environment.
Education is currently provided within hospitals but only on a very rare basis. No provision is made for pre-school children, who may be fighting illness or disease, despite this being such a crucial learning stage. Outside of the hospital environment, it forms an integral part of their development as well as a means for them to form friendships and most importantly, being a child.
Piggles recognises that whilst addressing the medical needs of unwell children, it is no less important to consider the overall emotional, developmental and mental well-being of that young child.
As a pub company comprised of parents, grandparents, sons and daughters, we 100% support the aims and work Piggles Trust is working towards implementing into UK hospitals, and we want to encourage our customers and the local community to join us in supporting this fantastic cause.
Annual Charity Challenge
In July 2018, a team of Red Mist Leisure staff will be taking on their biggest challenge yet to raise money for three charities; one being Piggles Trust. Our own staff members and colleagues will be walking the length of Hadrian’s Wall which is a total of 86 miles, over 3 days. We will be encouraging customers and local residents to support us by donating to our Just Giving page. Please keep an eye out for more details of this challenge.
As of January 2018, we will donate 50p of every kid’s meal sold to Piggles Trust; so not only will your little ones be enjoying a tasty bite to eat, but they’ll also be doing their bit for this wonderful charity as well!
