Local charity Rennie Grove Hospice Care has launched a new initiative aimed at pubs. Throughout February, the ‘Triple F’ campaign gives pubs the opportunity to rope their regulars in for some ‘Fabulous February Fundraising’.
Landlords and pub-goers alike will see purple and pink marketing material marked FFF appearing this month. Postcards list ideas - including a pub quiz, fancy dress evening, speed-dating night, pancake-themed event or simply a raffle - and posters can be filled in with the date of the next event at your local watering hole.
Nicola MacKinnon, Community Fundraising Manager for Rennie Grove, explained: “Loads of pubs and their customers already support us, for which we’re extremely grateful. Triple F is a chance for long-standing supporters like these to go up against newcomers, all competing for the Triple F trophy in their local area.”
Local pubs who’d like to take part can sign up by calling 01727 731028 before January 29. All funds raised need to be with the charity by Saturday March 12 so the winners can be verified and announced on Tuesday March 15.
