The Queen's Head pub in Bramfield has beaten its target and raised more than £10,000 for charity.

The pub chose the Pear Tree Fund as its charity of the year in 2019 because of its assistance to vulnerable locals.

The entire team and pub patrons, however, were so touched by the cause they never stopped fundraising.

The current total raised is said to be £10,598.

Money was obtained through a plethora of creative means.

Charity events such as musical bingo, race nights, raffles, food tastings and fashion shows fill the schedule.

Even during the height of the pandemic, a determined staffer ran the virtual London Marathon to secure funds.

A full-sized pop-up charity bookstore, the most recent initiative, popped up in the pub's restaurant.

It generated £1,184, allowing the Queen's Head to surpass that crucial £10,000 line.

Owner of the Queen’s Head, Kate Wood, said: “We’re delighted that we have been able to continue supporting the Pear Tree Fund and raise more than £10,000 for them.

"The charity does the most amazing work for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families and carers, as well as supporting the recently bereaved, people with mental health needs and much more.

"They’re an integral part of our community and the work they do is breath-taking.

“It was such a difficult time for charities during the pandemic, followed by the cost-of-living crisis, so passing the £10,000 mark is a real achievement.
