child first, disability second.
We are proud to support Cherry Trees, a small charity based here in East Clandon, providing home from home respite care for children and young people with severe learning and physical disabilities.
Founded in 1980, Cherry Trees recognise that special needs children are best looked after at home but, because of their needs, they require special care, often 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
At The Queen’s Head we have been helping to raise funds for the important care they provide, through a number of initiatives…
Red Mist Ale
We have partnered with Tilford Brewery to create our very own Red Mist Ale, of which we donate 10p of every pint sold here at The Queen’s Head, to Cherry Trees. So come and enjoy a pint, whilst doing your bit for charity!
In July 2018, a team of Red Mist Leisure staff challenged themselves to their biggest charity fundraiser yet, to raise money for three charities; one being Cherry Trees. Our staff members and suppliers walked the full 86 miles of Hadrian’s Wall, within 3 days, raising over £7,000 for Cherry Trees alone.
July 2019 saw the team once again don their walking boots, this time walking 100k of the undulating and gruelling Jurassic Coastline, in 2.5 days. The team raised over £15,000 for two local charities.
Our sister pub, The Duke of Cambridge in Tilford, has hosted nine charity music festivals in aid of Cherry Trees over the last 10 years, putting on a fantastic day for the whole family, with live music, delicious food and drink, kids entertainment, amazing raffle prizes and more.
