A summer party is being held at a pub in Holyport to raise funds for the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
The Belgian Arms, based in Holyport Street, is holding its summer party at the pub on Sunday to help the charity achieve its £5m target to build a children’s hospice in the borough.
Visitors will be entertained by Terry Parson’s Dixieland Band in the afternoon, before popular rock group Skin and Blister Band perform from 7pm in the evening.
Beer lovers will be able to try various ales as the pub is also running a beer festival, as well as an Australian-style barbecue in the afternoon.
All ages are invited as children’s games will run all day with face-painting on offer.
Roz Parkinson, marketing manager of the pub said: “It’s aimed at the whole family, we are hoping to raise lots of money for Alexander Devine.
“It’s an afternoon of fun, food, beer and music to mark the start of the school summer holidays. Everyone is welcome.”
Charity co-founder, Fiona Devine, said: “Nick and Roz Parkinson and everyone at The Belgian Arms are long-term supporters of Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service and we are delighted they are holding a family fun day with proceeds from the children’s games and raffle to help us build Berkshire’s children’s hospice.”
The event begins at midday and is set to run until 10pm.
