Exmouth Arms Customers Push Sue Ryder Hospice Fundraising to £1400

Cheltenham pub The Exmouth Arms, on the Bath Road, has raised a massive £1400 for Sue Ryder Hospice in Cheltenham.

The money was raised over a June weekend when the popular pub hosted its annual ‘Ex-fest’.

Local bands, a dog show in association with Vets on the Park and a science party for children drew in the crowds who dined on pizzas from the pub’s outside wood-fired oven and enjoyed special ales and ciders invited in for the weekend.

Exmouth Arms Manager Steve Hine was delighted with local support for the event.

“This is our ninth ExFest and we all work really hard on making it a fun event for everyone who comes to support it. The Sue Ryder Hospice at Leckhampton is quite close to the pub, and it’s a charity which is hugely respected for the incredible work it does, so we wanted to do our bit within our community. We know the charity as a whole needs over £40 million a year to keep its services running and we are very happy that with the support of our customers and staff, we have been able to make our donation.”
