We were overwhelmed by the Plough on the Green Manger Ken Gammon and Jane Wells, and all of his patrons for recent fundraising towards the work of our West Berkshire Centre.
Through a combination of a Christmas Draw, Race Night and donations for hand-made Christmas Wreaths, together they have raised a whopping £1,742!
Staff from Dingley’s Promise and patrons gathered to say goodbye to Ken, who departs after 8 years at the Plough on the Green. Catherine McLeod MBE, Dingley’s Promise Chief Executive gifted to Ken a framed photograph of the pub as a memory of his time there. We wish to thank him for his tremendous support and wish him luck in his new ventures.

Louise Farmer, Dingley’s Promise Centre Manager received the cheque and on behalf of her team said:
“We are delighted to have received the donation from the Plough on the Green. This would not have been possible without the dedication and support of Jane Wells and Ken Gammon who have been raising funds for a number of years and we know how passionate Jane Wells is with our charity, which we are so grateful for.
We would also like to wish Ken a happy retirement. We will miss seeing you at The Plough on the Green and we know you can look back on your time supporting Dingley’s Promise as an achievement. Here’s hoping that you find the same in whatever adventures you have planned next.”
