Broughs Butchers is proud of its work in the local community and how it supports local charities.
Broughs Butchers enjoys playing an active part in the community and enjoys contributing to the success of these fund raising and community events.
One of the major events in which Broughs Butchers actively is involved in is the Edwardian day which takes place on a yearly basis. Each year Ainsdale Broughs put on a fantastic BBQ for the hundreds of people who attend the Edwardian day. There is plenty to do on the day for the visitors to Ainsdale, with plenty of entertainment for the children, who each year have a fancy dress theme to adhere too.
Each year Broughs Formby also plays a major role in the switching on the Formby Christmas lights, whereby once again the now famous Broughs BBQ is rolled out into the village to supply great tasting Burgers to the hundreds in attendance. Broughs not only contributes through feeding the locals, but also contributes financially to the set up and running costs of the night and Christmas lights.
One of the most worthy of causes that Broughs Butchers as a whole supports is the Queens Court Hospice, with ongoing contributions throughout the year, Broughs Butchers feel very proud in helping towards a very important cause. So much so that Broughs Butchers took part in the Santa sprint this year.
In March 2010 Brough Butchers was approached by a group of volunteers who represent a high school local to the Birkdale store. The volunteers for the school raise money each year in order for the boys at the school to get the best education possible. Brough Butchers felt this was a very worthy cause, as these boys are the future for our Country. Brough Butchers contributed towards the cause and we hope that we can help make a difference for the children for many years to come.
A proud moment for Broughs came in September when we helped raise £1498.50 for the Southport Paraplegic sports and social club. It turned out to be a great day of events, with the day being dedicated to a crown green bowls competition, which everyone was able join in with. The day finished with a prize raffle, with Broughs donating a meat voucher for one of the many winners of the day.
Further important contributions which Broughs makes is for the All Saints Charity, Justgiving.com, SURGE and the Formby race night.
