February 2018 Landlord of the Month
This month's Landlord of the Month is Ant Walton of the Rose of Lancaster, Oldham.
What they did
Ant has raised over £5,000 by holding various fundraising initiatives including a game of ‘predict the scores’ throughout the football season, race nights, quiz nights and raffles.
Ant is also aiming to be shortlisted and in with a chance of becoming Prostate Cancer UK’s ‘favourite local’, judged by a panel of industry experts including Masterchef judge Gregg Wallace.
Why they did it
Ant, said: “I decided to support Prostate Cancer UK not only because I have a personal link to the cause but also because I’ve realised the importance in making my customers and staff aware of the disease. Everyone has been so supportive and really got behind this which has been fantastic.
“I am really thrilled to be named Landlord of the Month, what an honour! Raising money for Prostate Cancer UK brings all the people in the pub together, and we also found that a few locals have been diagnosed. Touch wood, there’s a lot of them that have had successful treatment and come out the other side smiling. 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.
Every month we draw a Men United Arms participant out of the hat randomly to win a prize. January's prize winner is The Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen, who win Srixon Z star golf balls, t-shirts and tickets to an EFL match of their choice.
