The Tattingstone Wheatsheaf is raising money for Pancreatic Cancer UK. Pancreatic cancer is the toughest of cancer challenges. It’s tough to diagnose, tough to treat, tough to research, and tough to survive.
In the last five years, we have seen more progress than in the previous five decades. In the next five years, Pancreatic Cancer UK is stepping up the pace and driving this progress even further forward, transforming how we diagnose, treat, and care for people with pancreatic cancer – and ultimately save lives.
We have a number of events this year that we hope will raise awareness and much-needed funds for this charity. Take a look below at what we have planned and do come and join in the fun! For more details check out our Events page.
February - Harriet's Karaoke.
Harriet brings you her fun-packed night of Karaoke madness. With special guest Judges and your chance to show Harriet what you can do, this is a night that will go down in the Wheatsheaf memory as a true one-of-a-kind.
March - Pie Competition.
It’s as it says, make a pie and enter the competition. As National Pie Week comes to an end we celebrate all things Pie!
May - Charity Bike Ride
Blow away the cobwebs and join in with a bike ride, the event that brings our Bank Holiday weekend to a close.
June - 1940’s Afternoon Tea Party
Come and help us celebrate 80 years since the D-Day landings with a typical 1940’s style afternoon tea. Enjoy home-made cakes, sandwiches, tea and of course a glass or two of bubbly to accompany it. Tickets will be on sale on a first come basis, all proceeds to the charity.
July - Alan Gipps Memorial Petanque Tournament
The late Alan Gipps was an integral part of the Wheatsheaf Petanque team, so it is fitting that we celebrate his life every year on the Sunday closest to his birthday with a Petanque tournament. This will be a fun tournament open to all ages and abilities with prizes to be won.
