PUB-GOERS hope to have raised thousands of pounds for charity at a community festival.
The Fox and Hounds pub in Stakes Hill Road, Waterlooville, held a three-day festival in aid of The Rowans Hospice at the weekend.
Bands played live performances for free and families took part in the pub’s fun day on Saturday.
Manager Kelly Sweeting said: ‘It was absolutely brilliant.
‘Loads of people turned up and everyone had a really good time.
‘We are really grateful to everyone who took part and donated things to us for the weekend.
‘It was a real community event because everyone pitched in to help each other.’
Last year the pub raised £1,600 for The Rowans Hospice.
This year staff hope to set a new record.
Dozens of families turned up to take part in a tug-of-war followed by a balloon release.
Kathy Farmer, 33, of Mill Road, Waterlooville, was there with her partner Keith and their four children.
She said: ‘It’s been a really great day and so much has been going on.
‘The kids have really enjoyed themselves and so have we.’
