Local Community Pub Collects More Than 630 Easter Eggs for Local Charities

The Owd Joss in Hyde – part of Proper Pubs, the community wet-led division of Admiral Taverns, has successfully collected 638 chocolate Easter Eggs to donate to local communities. Created to put a spring in the step of those in need, which given the cost-of-living crisis is more important than ever, the Easter Eggs have all been donated by individual members from the local community.

Despite the ongoing pressures of the cost-of-living crisis, community spirit radiated through Hyde. The Owd Joss started collecting Easter Eggs at the beginning of March to ensure individuals, families and children across the UK have a sweet treat to look forward to.  The pub has chosen to donate to a host of charities dedicated to supporting the development of young children including Tameside Children’s Ward, Little Lambs Toddler Group, Planet Kids Nursery and Banana Moon Nursery as well as local foodbank, Saint Mary’s.

Across its estate, Proper Pubs has collected 12,200 Easter Eggs for those in need of a little pick-me-up and are continuing to collect any egg-stra Easter Eggs over the Easter weekend.

 

Matthew Gurney, Operations Director for Proper Pubs, commented: “We have always championed community pubs because we understand the value they bring to millions of people across the country. The Owd Joss is so much more than just somewhere for people to go for a drink – it is an integral part of the Hyde community, and places where people come together to support one another. It’s incredible to see this in action through this initiative, and even better to be able to provide a little treat to those who might otherwise go without.”

 

“As always, I am so grateful to our fantastic operators and their communities who have come together to make this happen, demonstrating Proper Pub’s commitment to community focus.”

 

Proper Pubs is always looking for ways to raise funds for charity and to support its local communities through an annual schedule of events, including installing life-saving defibrillators, Christmas selection box donations and live music events. Through its partnership with national mental health charity, Chasing the Stigma, it also raised an impressive £35,000 in under one month where each of its pubs hosted different charity events, including barbeques and quiz nights.
