We’ve partnered with some incredible food charities and non-profit organisations since 2022 to donate high quality meat to help combat food poverty. We’re super proud to have been able to work with organisations including FareShare – the UK’s biggest charity fighting hunger and food waste – and other local charities including Square Food Foundation, Missing Link and Caring in Bristol.

We have always admired the amazing work that FareShare does, so we couldn’t be more excited to partner with them and use the incredible infrastructure they’ve built. With the launch of our Jolly Good Ham, we thought this was the perfect time to get free ham to people that need it the most. Lots of children and families struggle to get good quality meat, and partnering with FareShare gives us the opportunity to help in the best way we can.”

After donating 5p from every Scotch egg sold over the last year to NHS North Bristol Trust, we’re going to be donating Scotch Eggs to FareShare going forward with every pack of our Scotch Eggs that are sold.

Scotch Eggs for Jolly Good Eggs
From every one of our Scotch Egg sold, we donate 5p, through the official charity for North Bristol NHS to Southmead Hospital Charity. Which means every time you are tucking into our gooey Scotch Eggs, you can give yourself a pat on the back for being a Jolly Good Egg and helping fund the NHS.
50K Free Meals For The NHS
Every week during the national lockdowns, we took our beloved airstream Miss Piggy down to Southmead Hospital to hand out free hot meals to the staff there. After a year there, we had donated 50,000 free meals with the help of our amazing team, friends, family and some amazing volunteers.
Tackling Food Poverty in Bristol
We’ve been working with Square Food Foundation since March 2020, an amazing charity that works to reduce hunger and bring people together through food and cooking. From donating stock to our whole team volunteering to pack meal boxes and teach cookery classes to local children, working with Square Food has been a pleasure.
50 days of volunteering
In 2022, allowed our team more time to get stuck into the things that matter, volunteering for local charities and organisations, focused on food waste and food equality.⁠ ⁠ From packing free meal kits for families who need them, to teaching C.V. skills to young adults breaking into the restaurant industry, to assisting in cooking classes for adults with special needs, our team have been busy spreading the jolliness with food in anyway they can, spending 50 days of the year volunteering!
Running for the NHS!
After feeding the NHS 50k free meals during the pandemic, we wanted to continue supporting our local Bristol NHS. Since 2020, 3 of our The Jolly Hog team have ran the London Marathon to raise money for Southmead Hospital Charity, raising thousands of pounds to support our amazing local hospital in the process.
Marking International Womens Day
For International Womens Day in 2023 we wanted to do something more. Missing Link is an amazing mental health and housing service, for women in Bristol, providing housing and support for women with acute or long term mental health issues that put their housing at risk, or have resulted in homelessness.⁠ ⁠ We teamed up with Missing Link to donate our sausages to some of the lovely women that they support.⁠ ⁠ Here’s our Events Manager, Emily, spreading the jolliness dropping our sausages to these women.⁠
