Glass Horse bringing a taste of OZ to St Helens

The Glass Horse in St Helens is giving customer a chance to take on bush tucker trials and meet creepy crawlies when they hold an Australian Theme day on Saturday 24 January in a bid to help raise money for The Steve Prescott Foundation.
In 1995 the first Hungry Horse pubs opened and twenty years on the chain has gone from strength to strength, providing good food, outstanding value and an inviting atmosphere for the whole family in over 220 pubs. The site on Sherdley Road, St Helens will be celebrating their first birthday over the Easter Weekend.

The Australian day begins at the Hungry Horse pub on Sherdley Road at 6pm and includes bush tucker trials for those brave enough to take them on, a BBQ with food Aussie themed food such as Crocodile and Kangeroo, and the chance to meet a snake and a spider from “The Creepy Crawley Roadshow”
Proceeds from the event will go to The Steve Prescott Foundation to continue the work done by all supporting hospitals in the fight for Cancer and supporting seriously injured Rugby League players.
Richard Johnson, manager of the Glass Horse, said: “With Australia Day approaching we wanted to do something to give everyone a taste of down under. We have quirkily named our event “I’m a Guest, Get Me into Here” a spin on the hugely popular TV reality theme show “I’m A Celebrity” we are creating a Bush Tucker Clearing in the Bar and have many events planned to entertain the whole family.
 We are confident that our customers will love the event and will help us raise lots of money for the foundation, which is such a fantastic cause.
“It is set to be a really enjoyable day and anyone wishing to support it is welcome to come along and join in the fun.”
 Looking to next month when the Saints face the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Langtree Park, we are giving the locals of St Helens a taste of Australia ahead of this fantastic fixture.

Martin Blondel General Manager of the SPF said “We are elated the Glass Horse has chosen the SPF as its charity partner for this event. We are sure it is going to be a huge success and a phenomenal evening!”
