Doing our bit
During a year like no other, through times of uncertainty, disruption and sadness there are stories of wonderful acts of human kindness. Our H&W Family are a testament to this. Even with the forced closure of our pubs some inspirational team came up with their own innovative ways to continue fundraising for good causes. Most notable is Richard Curtis, General Manager at the Portsmouth Arms, Basingstoke. Richard’s lockdown daily virtual pub quiz earnt him a Guinness World record for the longest continuous pub quiz, with over 835,000 having tuned in from across the globe in the process. Richard’s quizzing fundraising efforts have since earnt him a tally of 7 significant awards.
Richard’s achievements were crowned by him being recognised by her Majesty in the 2021 New Year’s honours list with a British Empire Medal. He brought his community together to stay safe and have fun while managing to raise £70,000 for 17 local charities in and around Basingstoke during 2020.

Pub Charity Partnerships
October 2020 saw the launch of our new local Pub Charity Partnerships. With each of our Managed Houses choosing to team up with their own individual local charity partner. These relationships will remain in place until the end of September 2022.
Our pub teams will work collaboratively with their chosen charity partner to fundraise in a variety of ways such as: pub quizzes, sponsored events, baking cakes, fancy dress and family fun days.
We also look forward to the return of our annual Dorset Beer Festival, held at our Badger Brewery in Blandford Forum, which has raised over £40,000 in five years.
