The Locksbrook Inn has made a sizeable donation to Newbridge Primary School this week. The pub has for the last 6 months donated 50p from the sale of every children’s meal to charity. The team pick a different charity every six months, and this time around they collected an impressive £1,165 to donate to the school.
On Monday 23rd September, head teacher Gill Kennaugh invited Joe Cussens (Bath Pub Co Managing Director) and some of The Locksbrook staff to attend the children’s afternoon assembly. The assembly focused on how donations to the school really help make a difference to the children’s education – with money raised going towards replacing windows, painting walls and equipment.
Gill was thrilled to receive the donation from the local pub. “Thank you, sincerely, to the Bath Pub Company who generously donated £1,165 to Newbridge Primary School on Monday 23rd September. Our school and wider community are very important to us, and through our school values we promote collaboration and citizenship.”
“The funds donated will support our plans to enhance our school site,” continued Gill. “We want to make areas of it more accessible, whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle and supporting everyone’s wellbeing. Thank you to everyone concerned within the company; this donation will make a difference to everyone.”
“We’re delighted that we’ve been able to support our local primary school,” added Joe Cussens, “and would like to thank all our customers who have helped us to make this happen. We believe that a good pub should be more than just about serving great food and drink – it should be at the heart of the community and look for ways to support that community, just as our customers support us. Presenting this cheque to the school was a real thrill – it was lovely to meet all the children and hear how our contribution will help the school.”
