A PUB is hoping to raise some vital funds for charity by giving away a portion of its profits made on every meal.

The Hare and Hounds pub in High Garrett has said it will be helping numerous charities for the rest of the year.

It comes after the pub recently transformed its outside seating area and has said it is now focusing on its restaurant service.

For the rest of 2022, the pub has announced it will be donating £1 for every main meal bought at the pub to charity.

For April, the pub will be raising funds for the The Liam Taylor Legacy charity.

Set up by Julie Taylor, the charity was set up in the memory of Liam Taylor who was tragically killed in a knife attack in 2020 at the Rose and Crown pub in Writtle.

The charity is raising money to purchase “Bleed Control Kits” for local businesses.

Pub owner Michael Campbell said: “Towards the end of April, we will be putting a vote together to decide who will be the next charity we raise funds for.

“I think it’s important to help where we can. We’re fortunate to be in a position to do so. So giving back is the right thing to do.

“The charities we will be supporting will be small, local ones as it’s vital that these types of charities get the support they desperately need.

“We will also be doing some huge fundraising events in the summer, such as the 'Summer Family Fun Day' which will be on July 31.”
