Generous donation to firefighters in Wareham

I’ve love Rio Riva and I love crisps – so I can imagine the delight of Wareham Fire Station when Matt Slater and the Hall & Woodhouse team donated oodles of both!

Hall & Woodhouse has been cheering up Dorset since 1777. The family-run firm are working harder than ever to aid the community.

The company is famous nationwide for its award-winning Badger Ales and Mark Woodhouse and Anthony Woodhouse are the current seventh generation stewards, so the business is proud to be a leading independent regional brewer, with an established estate of 180 beautiful pubs across the south of England.


The firm has so far donated 1,500 bottles of its Rio Tropical Light soft drink and 400 packets of Pipers crisps to Wareham Fire Station for firefighters tackling the fire at Wareham Forest, which must be tough during the current heatwave. Other local fire stations will receive their share to boost their difficult shifts.

Anthony Woodhouse, Chairman of Hall & Woodhouse, said: “The devastating fire at Wareham Forest this past week  has been harrowing to witness. At this difficult time where key workers are working relentlessly to support us through the current health crisis, the firefighters at Wareham Forest have shown immense bravery and strength.

“With our pubs being temporarily closed, we wanted to do what we could to support our firefighters and thank the crew on the ground at the scene of the fire.”

Previous donations have been made to the NHS frontline staff at Poole Hospital, Dorset County Hospital and Alderney Hospital in Poole. The key workers at Dorset County Council’s Charminster Depot and Dorset and Poole Community Exchange’s Foodbank also received a Rio Tropical donation.
