Pub summer party raises cash for Alexander Devine charity

Country rock and upbeat swing music sounded out through the beer garden of a Holyport pub as fundraisers turned out to support the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.


 

The Belgian Arms, in Holyport Street, held its summer party on Sunday in a bid to help ADCHS raise the £5 million they need to build Berkshire’s first children’s hospice.

The pub’s landlord, Nick Parkinson, and his father, Sir Michael Parkinson, are both long-term supporters of the charity.

A host of games were laid on for children while the adults listened to the merry music of Terry Parson’s Dixieland Band.

Later in the evening the six-piece Skin and Blister Band treated audiences to their soft country rock.

Band member Mark Appleyard, who lives in Old Windsor, has been helping ADCHS through both his music and his role as club captain at Stoke Park Golf Club, in Slough.

Julia Philipson, ADCHS community fundraiser, told the Advertiser on Sunday: “It’s a privilege and a pleasure to be here and we’re always so grateful to the Parkinson family for their continued support.”
