A PUB celebrated reaching an important milestone by asking punters to pay what they like all night – with all the proceeds going to charity.

Owners of The Wheelwright’s Arms, in Emsworth Road, Havant, marked two years at the pub by helping out Cash for Kids, a charity which supports children who are financially, socially, emotionally or physically disadvantaged.

Diners were invited to enjoy a tasty meal and then donate what they felt it was worth.

They raised more than £2,000 from the event.

General manager Sean Clapson said: ‘The whole day was incredible from start to finish.

‘It’s hard to believe we are already celebrating our second anniversary at The Wheelwright’s Arms.

‘I would personally like to thank our lovely neighbours who helped us surpass our target at the last minute.

‘It just shows the true community spirit of our locals and the difference that people can make.

‘We are absolutely delighted to have hit our target and will continue to support Cash for Kids in the future.

‘We would also like to thank everyone who’s been with been us over our two years – our lovely customers and incredible team – we couldn’t do it without you.’
