A pub is hosting a fundraising event to raise money for Save the Children's Ukraine Appeal.

The Black Bull, in Haltwhistle, is hosting a fundraising event on Saturday 26th March from 10am-4pm to raise money to help displaced Ukrainian families in need amid the humanitarian crisis the country is facing.

There will be a number of traditional stalls for locals to browse, including bric-a-brac, food, tombola, craft, and plant stalls, and all proceeds raised will be donated to Save the Children’s Ukraine Appeal.

The pub is owned by Hawthorn, the community pub company, which owns more than 700 pubs across England, Scotland, and Wales

Pub Partner Martin Campbell, who has been at The Black Bull for nearly three years, said: “We’re keen to help those in need in any way we can and we’re hoping our fundraising event will be a huge success and bring our community together to raise funds for a very worthy cause. We want to raise as much money as we possibly can and the entire community is welcome to support us in helping as many Ukrainians as possible.”

Andrew Parker, Director of Leased and Tenanted Operations at Hawthorn, said: “We’re proud to be a community pub company, and it’s more important than ever that our pub Partners are doing what they can to support their communities nearby and further afield. Well done to Martin and everyone at The Black Bull from all of us at Hawthorn.”
