Every year, Marie Eaton (our Finance Manager) takes on a new challenge to raise well-needed funds and awareness for the Foundation of Prader-Willi Research UK (FPWR UK). The charity is one that is close to our hearts as it provides funds for research into Prader-Willi Syndrome, which our director, Vicki William’s daughter was diagnosed with at 2 weeks old.

This year was no different.

On the 27th April, Marie gathered over 30 team members and friends of Almond Family Pubs and triumphed over the Born Survivor’s mud-fuelled, assault course. This wasn’t just a regular mud-run, we’re talking about a gruelling (but oh-so-rewarding) 10k obstacle course designed by Royal Marine commandos, featuring mud, sweat, and probably a few tears.

So far, the team has raised an amazing £2,875, up and over their original goal!
This money is vital for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research UK, so that they can continue with research projects that will eliminate the challenges that PWS presents.

Marie is a regular fundraiser for FPWR UK and we are so grateful for her commitment and fundraising… We wonder what she will do next year?

We are delighted to be organising our 10th annual charity walk for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research UK this July. So far with our combined efforts we have raised a staggering £148,976 and we would love to continue to see this figure grow.  The research the FPWR UK finances is imperative to making the lives of those affected by Prader-Willi Syndrome more manageable.

Not only is this a wonderful day for our pubs and the local community but it’s a great chance to catch up with friends (whilst getting your steps in!) and to raise money for this important charity that is so close to our hearts.

This year’s event is on Saturday 13th July and will follow the same route as last year.

We will be starting slightly earlier this year so we can start celebrating a little earlier at the Jolly Sailor. Registration will open at 9.30am at the Fletchers Arms, ready to set off at 10.30am.

The day will include a pub pit stop at the Spread Eagle, lunch at the Puss in Boots, and finishing with a celebration party at the Jolly Sailor.

There will be a raffle, DJ, bouncy castle & more…

We really hope to see some familiar faces there again, as well as many new walkers. We would love you to invite friends and family and help us make the 10th event even more memorable!

At Almond Family Pubs, we love to give gratitude where it is deserved and this year at our annual Staff party we did just that.
There were many internal awards throughout the pubs such as Chef of the Year (which went to our Lovely chefs Lois & Rob) and Bartender of the Year (which went to everyone’s favourite, Teigan), but perhaps the most prestigious award of the night was the highly anticipated Leader of the Year Award. This was a ‘People’s Choice’ award, voted by staff members throughout the pubs. This year it went to Luke Finnigan, with 41.3% of his team’s vote.

Joining the Almond family in 2017, Luke is a well-loved member of the team and a staple at the Spread Eagle, which is evident from the lovely comments his team gave him…

For his management skills in delegating, the workload to members of the staff who are most appropriate,
Allowing staff to build on them skills within the company. Always being an approachable. When staff need a problem solving Luke is always reachable, whether in work or away. Dedication to work environment, always looking at improvements and ideas that he can put forward. (Probably the best, Manager I have worked for throughout my 35 years working life)

We’re so pleased to see Luke get the recognition he deserves. Well done Luke!
