There is a new focus on Charity in the White Cross and it has proved that the pub has a huge heart.
There are monthy events now with the proceeds divided between Velindre Cancer Hospital and Tenovus. We had a great start with our Wig and Wine night which filled the pot to the tune of £600! Karen was the star, she wore her wig to work and raised a wapping £165 to boost our total..we are convinced the money was to stop her singing..Simply the best..or was it Private Dancer!!
Coming up over the next few months are:
April 21st..Pretty in Pink night..there is a fine for anyone not wearing something pink!! including the men! It’s a free night with and artist and lots of money spinners..raffle, heads and tails, bran tub..
May 20th is our Vintage teaparty in aid of Tenovus..out with the best china..and plenty of home bakes and neat sandwiches..tickets £5.
June 23rd Charity race night to coincide with Ascot..can you pick the winners.
Hope to see you at some of our charity nights.
The White Cross Cricket Team
We have recently re-formed The White Cross Cricket Team. We have a number of faithful soldiers but would love some new blood. Can you bowl, bat, score or make tea? Get in touch!
We are grateful to every one who donated ‘kit’,our original kit was left rotting in the wood shed, after some public pleas we now have kit and an enthusiastic team. Considering our late start in the season we have already played Caerphilly Fire Service, The Capel Gilfach, The Rudry Inn and the Black Cock. We even have a tour organised and the big match to come..Men against Boys!! The over 50’s against the under 50’s on the Sunday of August bank holiday.
Every Tuesday night is Quiz Night with lots of chances to win, not just the clever clogs! There are prizes every week for the best team name, the Joker Round and the nearest the bull question. (The only charge is for the nearest the Bull, 50p straight in the Charity Box). It can be a tad boisterous and the scoring is sometimes outrageous with wipeout rounds and bingo scores! If you fancy a change on a Tuesday come and join us we would love to see you we start around 8.30.
Charity Book Shelf
We have a wonderful Charity book shelf which is loaded with books..it mysteriously stays full but so do the charity pots! Many thanks to everyone who brings books and everyone who buys books..at 50p each they are a bargain.
Weekends at the White …it is a place for meeting and friendships, there are occasional functions, occasional live music or karaoke. Lots of good beer, chit chat and laughter.
We are open 12-12 Friday, Saturday and Sunday…4-12 Monday -Thursday
