THE Retreat in Ledbury has launched an appeal to “Fill Santa’s Sack” and help those in need this Christmas.

The pub on the High Street will be accepting donations of toys, clothes, unwanted gifts or anything else that could be put to good use, ready for donation on December 20.

Meanwhile — stealing a march on pub giant Wetherspoon — the Retreat announced on Thursday 9December 9) that it already had Weston Cider’s Stowford Press available on tap.

On Saturday night, the pub will be the venue for a “Back in the Day” DJ set alongside its usual live sports.

Next week, the pub is relaunching its weekly Tuesday night quiz at 7.30pm. Entry costs £1 per person, with up to six to a team. The top prize is a £30 bar tab, plus a jackpot prize question every week.
