During a time of financial uncertainty and hardship for so many, there are a number of unsung heros working away to raise funds for charity for no other reason but to help others.

Across Gedling our ‘locals’ and their customers have been playing an essential role in supporting a wide range of charities and one of these is The Nags Head in Woodborough.

Gedling Eye caught up with Clive & Kim Wisdom, Landlord and Landlady at the Nags Head in Woodborough as the couple and their customers have helped to support two charitable causes in the local area by raising £4000 between May 2022 and May 2023.

The couple said “Firstly, we worked with the Nottinghamshire Hospitals Charity (NHC) to raise £1000 specifically for Hayward House, a specialist palliative care unit in the grounds of the City Hospital.

“It was great to meet Joanne Burr (the NHC Corporate Fundraising Manager) on June 1 for the cheque presentation at the Nags.

“We have been supporting various NHC causes over the last few years and it was fantastic to do so again”

But the fundraising did not stop there as Clive and Kim also assisted the former Mayor of Gedling to raise £3000 for the Children’s Cancer Ward at the Nottingham City Hospital.

Clive and Kim said “It was fantastic to work with Peter, his wife Sandra, and their team, who were very generous with their time and showed true dedication to the cause.

“For example, they supported us in one of the most useful ways by supplying fantastic prizes for our fundraising raffles and even came up with their own fundraising games, such as “Guess the name of the Monkey” which was a hit last summer.

“It has been a privilege to help these two charities and we hope they continue to receive support for as long as they need it.”

The Nags Head is currently seeking some new causes to assist and already have a few options lined up.

Clive said that “Anyone who wishes to support the Nags in their fundraising activities can help raise money by coming along to our weekly Quiz & Bingo night on Thursdays and our Sunday Sticky 13’s night both start at about 8pm and are great fun.”

Readers can keep up to-date with the pub’s fundraising exploits by following the Nags Head on facebook HERE and/or give Clive a call on 07970 299305.
