The Kings Head in Bawburgh has raised £694 for charity Keeping Abreast during their 'chosen by you week', where the most popular specials of 2018 were served between November 3 -10.

The pub contributed £1 from each dinner and collected donations to raise funds for the charity, which offers patient led support for women who are facing mastectomy after the diagnoses of breast cancer or the discovery of the BRCA breast cancer gene.
