July 2018 Landlord of the Month
This month's Landlord of the Month is Tom Richardson & Ollie Boulton of The Three Moles in Selham, West Sussex.
What they did
Tom & Ollie raised over £1060 by hosting a quiz night as part of the Worlds Biggest Pub Quiz along with an auction of items kindly donated by local individuals and businesses, as well as an ongoing collection in the bar for Prostate Cancer UK.
Why they did it
Tom & Ollie said: “We decided to support Prostate Cancer UK because they have previously helped some of our local customers through difficult times and are still supporting other customers. It is a subject that isn’t talked about enough and anything that can be done to raise awareness is a must. Our customers are always supportive of charity events but even we were shocked by just how much was raised on the day, bearing in mind we are one of, if not the smallest pub in West Sussex.
“We are a small traditional real ale house with some clearly very generous customers! The pub was absolutely packed, even all the standing room was filled by local residents coming to donate money to such a worthy cause, whilst having a great evening at the same time and we look forward to organising similar events in the future.
“We are really pleased to be named Landlord of the Month, what an honour! The event went really well and I’m thrilled we were able to raise awareness of a disease that affects 1 in 8 men in the UK. Everyone had a great time and I encourage all landlords to sign up and turn their pubs into a Men United Arms.”
If you think you should be our next landlord of the month, email us to tell us why by the final Friday of the month.
