Mill Farm Pub Donates £500 To A Local Disabled Child

A leading children’s disability charity has received £500 to help a local disabled child. Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children, in Cannock, Staffordshire was given the money by dedicated supporter and local businesses woman Sue Gibbons, manager of Mill Farm Pub, in Lichfield Road, Cannock. Ms Gibbons, who has raised thousands for the charity over recent years, won two awards and donated the proceeds to three charities, including Newlife Foundation. Mill Farm was declared Regional Winners – Midlands and Best Fundraising Newcomer in the Mitchells & Butlers in the Heart of the Community Awards. Sue Gibbons says: “Over the years we’ve raised around £4,500 and most of that has been donated to Newlife. We first started raising money for charities because we wanted to do something for someone else which is so important. We’re also glad that we’ve won the award and we’ll continue to fundraise for good causes.” Newlife Foundation is a leading children’s disability charity that works closely to provide a range of services for children and their families with disabilities across the UK. Newlife CEO Sheila Brown OBE says: “In these difficult times we have found more and more families and children turning to us for help. That is why this gift from Mill Farm Pub is much appreciated and will help us to give more children hope through Newlife.” Mill Farm Pub also gave £500 each to St Giles Hospice and Carers Association Southern Staffordshire, Alzheimer Café UK Coordinator.
