In July, Billington Holdings Charity Foundation hosted two fantastic Hog Roast events at their Barnsley and Yate sites.
On the 20th July, the first Hog Roast event took place at Yate, to raise money for The Grand Appeal Bristol Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospice South West and Muscular Dystrophy UK. A further event took place on 27th July at Barnsley, fundraising for Weston Park Cancer Charity.
The Children’s Hospice South West cares for children with life-threatening conditions by providing professional family support services.

The 2018 Hog Roast events were full of fun, perfect for families to get together and helped to raise money and awareness for these very worthy causes. Billington Holdings Charity Foundation raised the wonderful amount of £3,200 in total from the events.
These very special charities deserved every penny, and Billington is extremely proud to hand over the infamous big cheques. Thank you to everyone who donated, attended and assisted with the event.
