Bawburgh Kings Head raises £694 for Keeping Abreast Charity

The Kings Head at Bawburgh has raised £694 for a fantastic cause during their ‘chosen by you’ week. Choosing to support Keeping Abreast, the money raised will go towards the great work already underway by the charity who offer patient led support for women who are facing or who have faced mastectomy after the diagnosis of breast cancer or the discovery of a breast cancer gene.

The highly commended Kings Head in Bawburgh wanted to give back to their customers as well as assist a great cause after an award winning year and devised the idea of a ‘chosen by you’ week. Throughout September and October votes were collected for the most popular specials served by the gastropub in 2018, with the favourites forming the specials menu offered from 3rdto the 10thof November. With £1 from each diner being donated by The Kings Head, customers contributing through collection boxes and some staff members giving their tips to the charity – a total of £694 was raised.

Owner Tet Wimmer was delighted with the amount raised “It was an honour to be able to support the great work undertaken by Keeping Abreast through this fundraising event, as well as give back to our wonderful customers during our ‘chosen by you’ week. It was a welcome change to see the restaurant dressed in pink!”

Lisa Becker from Keeping Abreast reflected on the week: “The ‘chosen by you’ week concept was a brilliant way for the Kings Head to celebrate their award winning restaurant and provide a stunning menu of favourite dishes for all to enjoy. We are thrilled to have received their very kind and generous donations during the week and indeed for their ongoing support.”

The funds raised will help Keeping Abreast to;

  • Continue and expand support groups providing emotional support, information and advice and give women and their families the opportunity to meet with others who have faced a similar path 
  • Give women the chance to see results of real life reconstructive surgery in the ‘show and tell’ sessions, which are invaluable as no one else can provide this
  • Offer financial and practical support to women to help prepare for surgery and also in the immediate post-surgery period


The Kings Head Bawburgh would like to thank everyone who visited us during the ‘chosen by you’ week and all those who donated to such a worthy cause.
