A THORNBURY pub has made the final of the Charity Pub of the Year awards.

The Swan, on Thornbury High Street, is up against seven other pubs across the country.

Under the stewardship of Sandra Davies the pub has raised more than £100,000 for charity in the last eight years.

The awards, run by PubAid and the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group (APPBG) recognises pubs who go the extra mile in their support of charities and good causes.

Judges, drawn from across the pub industry, considered not just the sums of money raised by entrants, but also their contribution to their local community through a range of activities

This year’s contest attracted close to 100 entries.

The winner will be announced later this month at the PubAid 10th Anniversary celebration in London.

Co-founder of PubAid, Des O’Flanagan said: “We’re delighted to be running this competition again.

“The entries underline the incredible support provided by pub teams and customers for charities and good causes.

“Pubs in the UK raise £100 million every year for charity and contribute a further £40 million to grassroots sport, making them a powerful force for good.”
