NOAH’S DOES THE “ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE”!!!!
On Wednesday 27th August, customers and staff from the Noah’s Ark took on the Ice Bucket Challenge.
A dozen people were lined up on the pavements edge to be “doused” in freezing cold water.
Mick, Iain, Kara, Kev and Will made up the staff contingent, the rest were “pressed from the customer ranks”. Those customers not lucky enough to get picked for the challenge had the honour of pouring the water over the victims.
The local press came down to witness the event and reported it in the paper the following day.
In true Ice Bucket Challenge tradition, and before getting soaked, Mick nominated 3 Stonegate pubs to take up the challenge and raise £50 each for charity.
The pubs nominated were The Brass Monkey, The Berkeley and Flares/Reflex. Mick gave them each 72 hours to complete the challenge.
The Noah’s managed to raise £90 by taking the challenge and intends to split the money between the Motor Neurone Disease Association and MacMillan Cancer Support.
On "yer" Bike!
As part of the official Stonegate Pub Company charity event, “Britain’s Biggest Pub Tour”. We were tasked to hold a charity event on Friday 30th May. This was the day the “passport” arrived at The Noah’s.
Stonegate’s challenge is to get the passport to visit EVERY pub in the company with a view to raising £100,000 for Variety, The Children’s Charity.
As a team we decided to “cycle” to Cardiff, the next city on the tour.
We borrowed 2 exercise bikes from our neighbours The Gym Group and off we went on our 151 mile journey. We asked our customers to guess (for £2) how long it would take if we were only using one bike. 12hrs and 27 minutes later we completed the task and managed to raise £540.00 towards the cause.
The team would like to say a big thank you to all who supported them on their epic journey.
