The Botanist raises a glass to new charity partnership

The Botanist in Leopold Square has unveiled plans to raise money for one of Sheffield’s leading children’s cancer charities.

The pub chain has announced that the new charity partner for its Sheffield site will be The Parents Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia (PACT), an organisation based in the city which provides support the families of children suffering from cancer.

Funds for the charity will be raised from a percentage from the purchase of kids’ meals, limited edition drinks and fundraising events organised by the venue.

James McBride, Sales & Events Manager for the site said: “We are very proud to be supporting PACT. The charity does tremendous work in supporting families, the wards and clinics, and contributing to vital research.

“We hope the donations we raise will help to further their very worthy cause, and continue to help families affected by cancer in Sheffield.”

Coordinator for PACT, Beryl Welburn, said: “We’re thrilled that The Botanist will be collecting donations for PACT.

“As a not-for-profit, all funds go directly to supporting the families of children suffering with cancer at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

“Every year we provide trips and treats for the children and their families, purchase equipment for the ward and clinic, contribute to ongoing research into treatment and provide support from diagnosis to remission.

“It’s fundraising like this that has enabled us to go from strength to strength to help dozens of affected families.”

The Botanist officially opened their doors in October, and offers its guests a range of botanical-style cocktails, locally sourced and world renowned gins and ales along with an honest, rotisserie style menu to accompany their vast drinks range.
