Local pub donates £500 to charity by selling 1000 burgers

The Goods Yard pub in Broadstone is donating 50p for every Junction Burger sold to The Junction Leisure Centre

The Goods Yard pub in Broadstone re-opened in October 2023 as part of the Fired Up Collective.

Since its inception in 2020 the Fired Up Collective (FUC) has become one of the fastest growing boutique restaurant groups in the UK.

The Goods Yard is a beloved pub in the heart of Broadstone, known for its excellent selection of local ales, beers, and ciders, as well as its elevated pub classics menu. Their location, in the historic old Railway Hotel near the famous Castleman’s trail, makes them the perfect stop for travellers and locals alike.

Andy Lennox, CEO of the Fired Up Collective, has chosen to support the Junction Sports and Leisure Centre (part of YMCA Bournemouth) as one of the Collectives charitable partners.

Andy Lennox said, “When we opened in October 2023, the Collective choose to support our neighbours, the Junction, by donating 50p from every Junction burger sold. We are excited to announce that we have now sold our 1000th burger and are donating £500 to the Junction. They provide excellent leisure facilities for the local population and are at the heart of the community. They are not just a place to go and get fit, but it is also a place for the community to come together. We are looking forward to selling another 1000 Junction burgers so that we can donate another £500 very soon.”

In response, Martin Stockley, Senior Operations Manager of YMCA Bournemouth said:

“Our sincere thanks to Andy and his excellent team. The Junction Sports & Leisure Centre, managed by YMCA Bournemouth, prides itself on serving the entire local community, all ages, and all abilities. The support from Fired Up Collective simply means that YMCA can stay at the heart of the community, continually updating facilities, passionately improving our services, and ensuring that this invaluable ‘hub’ is here for many years to come. Thank you from my team to yours Andy.”
