An independent pub company has praised its staff for raising £20,000 for good causes in just six months

Red Mist Leisure described the sum, achieved through sporting events including half marathons and 26-mile rambles, as a record in the company’s history.

Most recently a team of 14 staff, suppliers and customers climbed three of the highest mountain peaks in England, Scotland and Wales as part of the Three Peaks Challenge, raising £12,000 alone, said the operator, which has sites in Surrey and Hampshire.

Support and generosity

“As always, we’re blown away by people’s support and generosity and the donations we can help to raise means everything to the charities that we support,” said Mark Robson, MD of Red Mist Leisure.

"With another six months to go until the end of the year, we look forward to further thrashing last year’s charity record and we are already discussing what 2018’s target and ‘big’ charity sporting event might be.”

The money will be split between the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, Cherry Trees respite care home in Guildford, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care in Farnham, and Help for Heroes.

The group, which was set up 14 years ago by friends Mark Robson and Mark Williams, also donates 5p from the sale of every pint of its Red Mist Ale - a drink launched nearly four years ago to celebrate its tenth anniversary.
