Greyhound pub donates 50p a pint to ITFC Foundation Fixture
Ipswich Town fans’ favourite matchday pub will donate 50p to charity for every pint sold over lunchtime before the Foundation Fixture game against Charlton.
Pub staff will also pass around collection buckets for customers to hand over money for the excellent Ipswich Town Foundation.
The annual Foundation Fixture on Saturday, April 15, will help raise awareness for the charity and provide funds to grow its work and impact within the community.
The Greyhound landlord Dan Lightfoot said: “The Foundation does an excellent job in the area. As a popular pub with fans before and after Ipswich games, we wanted to do our bit to support it.
“We’re pledging 50p from every pint sold before kick-off – and we sell an awful lot of beer on matchdays!”
Dan, pictured above left with Ipswich Town Foundation Director Dan Palfrey, has hopes other pubs in and around the town will join the Greyhound’s initiative.
The pub is always super busy before matches – just take a look at what Good Friday was like before the Wycombe game…

The Foundation is also organising bucket collections in and around the ground for the Charlton match, plus there will be further donations from the high-flying football club:
- 50p from each home match ticket sold
£1 from every matchday programme
10% of profits from Planet Blue
20% of profits from the FanZone bar
Dan Palfrey said: “We’re extremely grateful to the Greyhound for its generous support. The pub is a firm favourite with Ipswich fans and a great supporter of the football club.”
Ipswich Town CEO Mark Ashton added: “A dedicated matchday for the Foundation allows us to highlight the vital work it undertakes every day in our local community.”
