Local Charity

cherry trees

We are proud to support Cherry Trees; providing home from home respite care for children and young people with severe learning and physical disabilities. Cherry Trees recognise that these children are best looked after at home but, because of their very special needs, they require special care, often 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Here at The Queen’s Head we have been helping to raise funds for the important work that they do, just around the corner from us here in East Clandon, Guildford through a number of initiatives. You’ll find donation boxes in our bar area.

Our monthly quiz raises money for Cherry Trees, too! Join us on the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 7.30pm. Entry is £5 per person, with a chance to win a cash prize, and proceeds going to Cherry Trees.
