The meals went to children who missed out on free school meals during the holidays
Two pubs served up fresh meals to be delivered to school children who missed out on free school meals during the holidays.
The Imperial and The Richmond, both in Southport, Merseyside, joined forces with Compassion Acts to provide hearty lunches for the charity`s Summer Fest school holiday club.
The Southport-based charity is one of six nominated causes being supported by the Joseph Holt brewery as part of its annual fund raising appeals.
This year`s 2021 charity appeal is supporting food banks and food clubs across the region. Compassion Acts runs the foodbank, food pantry and advice services in Southport.
The pubs cooked up over 100 tasty portions of sausage or chicken nuggets with mash and peas which were then delivered to children attending the Summer Fest holiday club.
Jane Kershaw, HR manager at Joseph Holt and the sixth generation member of the Holt family to work at the brewery, said: “We were delighted to work with Compassion Acts do cater for the children taking part in their holiday club.
“The organisation is already one of the nominated causes in our 2021/22 charity appeal which this year is supporting food banks and food clubs across the region. However it`s also rewarding to directly help young children .
“As a brewery, we have been around for 172 years and strongly believe that our pubs are the centre of the community. So what better way could there be to support the Southport Community than to get involved with the summer clubs.”
Summer Fest was open to children aged 7-11 years who are eligible for school meals and offered a programme of fun activities each day including circus school, science and musical theatre as well as arts and crafts.
Arianne Clarke Influencing & Partnerships Manager  at Compassion Acts added: “We`re so grateful for the support we receive from businesses such as Joseph Holt
“They are helping us to deliver an. enriching experience with lots of activities and have high quality food, something different every day, really good for them.
“Different high quality food every day.”
