Over the years we have supported a number of charities through various prize donations, fund raising events and charity dishes.
Charity dish/ pint
Our pubs like to feature either a charity dish on their menu or a charity beer on their bar which for every dish or pint sold then a percentage of the takings go to the local chosen charity.
Stange takes on ‘The Welsh Three Peaks’ 2020
From Yorkshire in 2019 to the mountains of Wales in 2020. This year we are taking on the Welsh 3 Peaks on Wednesday 13th of May covering 17 miles over 3 of the highest peaks in Wales ascending over 2300m in total – Pen Y Fan in Brecon (South), Cadair Idris at the bottom of the Snowdonia National Park (mid) and Snowdon (North) all in one day. The team are being pushed to their limits this year with the walk being the hardest yet but every year they never cease to amaze with their incredible will and determination.
It is fantastic to see so much money raised for such great causes each year. This year we are fundraising for Mind, a charity offering support to anyone experience a mental health problem.
Stange takes on ‘The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge’ 2019
Following on from the success of 2018’s charity challenge, “Stange takes on Snowdonia” whereby 20 employees took on the tough challenge of walking 18 miles over 5 of the Welsh 3000s’ peaks ascending more than 1800m where we raised over £5000 for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity then we thought we would do it again in 2019!
However, on the 8th of May 2019 the challenge was even bigger, longer and harder! It was not for the faint hearted but the brave hearted taking on 3 of the highest peaks in Yorkshire hiking over 24 miles and over 5000ft of ascent.
Dementia UK was our chosen charity for 2019 in support of their wonderful work that they do helping those who suffer from Dementia as well as the support they offer their families. Dementia has touched many hearts of the team here at Stange through family and friends and we are all keen to help in any way we can.
This was a huge challenge for most of the team who all stepped well beyond their comfort zone and really pushed themselves physically and mentally. But we were so proud to say that everyone made it across the finish line!
The team raised a fantastic total of £9075.69 for Dementia UK.
“Stange takes on Snowdonia”2018
In April 2018, as a group, we took on the challenge of walking 18 miles over 5 of the 14 peaks of the Welsh 3000s. The tough and mountainous walk took us from Carnedd Dafydd to Conwy Castle where we finished up at The Erskine Arms for a celebratory pint!
The challenge was created to support the “Let’s Go Green” campaign raising money for a new cancer centre in Liverpool as well as improving Clatterbridge hospital on the Wirral. The walk was a fantastic day out and a huge achievement for the team. Thank you to all those who supported both the event and the walkers.
The team raised a fantastic total of £5421.60 for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
