Although Christmas seems long gone now, we were reminded last week when a lovely letter from the charity CHUF – Children’s Heart Unit Fund at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle - dropped through our door. The letter was thanking us for our donation of £250 which we made at Christmas time instead of sending cards to our wonderful friends, family and customers.
Although Christmas is most definitely a time for giving, we took the decision to make a donation of what we would have otherwise spent on cards and postage to this very worthwhile charity as our way of spreading some true Christmas spirit.
The letter from CHUF tells us that our donation will go towards purchasing equipment, facilities and aftercare for babies and children with life threatening heart conditions and we can think of no better way to embrace the essence of a Christmas gift than helping them out. They also have asked us to pass on their thanks to our friends and customers too.
CHUF is particularly close to all our hearts here at the Pheasant Inn and we have seen first-hand the amazing work that they do. We are committed to carrying on a tradition we started in 2015 of donating to this wonderful charity instead of sending Christmas cards and making this our opportunity for us to give something back.
