Stonegate passes £500,000 in MND fundraising

Stonegate Group has achieved a significant milestone in its ongoing efforts.

The UK’s largest pub company has achieved a significant milestone in its ongoing commitment to combating Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Since April 2022, Stonegate Group's managed pub network, support and operational teams have collaborated to raise £500,000 in support of the MND Association and MND Scotland. 

To commemorate the milestone, a cheque presentation event was held at The Fatling in Hornchurch on Wednesday 8 May. 

"I'm proud to say that we have raised an incredible £500,000 for our corporate charity partners, the MND Association and MND Scotland," says David McDowall, CEO of Stonegate Group (pictured centre left). "It demonstrates our collective commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by Motor Neurone Disease. Together, via our incredible pub teams and wonderful colleagues in our support teams, we've not only raised funds, but also awareness. Thank you to everyone involved for your tireless efforts and generosity."

The Fatling and fundraising

The Fatling pub was chosen as the hosting venue for the cheque presentation due to its standout fundraising efforts under the leadership of Sandy Castle, who has operated the local pub for over 12 years.

Her team have hosted a huge array of charity events for MND over the past three years, showing their commitment to the cause and raising significant and much-needed funds for MND. 

Charity activities by the Stonegate community have ranged from walks along 30 miles of the Jurassic Coastline, to hosting dinner dances, quizzes, raffles and much more.

Stonegate Group is the largest pub company in the UK. Its portfolio is comprised of over 4,500 sites, split across managed, operator-led and leased and tenanted businesses.
