Our Community Matters To Us

Here at Osprey, we believe that the pub should be at the heart of our community but that means more than just location. We’re pleased to support our local community individuals and groups doing their bit to improve people’s lives and also to do what we can ourselves to make a difference to those around us.

Community Fund

We have a fund set aside for community or charitable purposes and each year we’re able to make contributions to help improve lives in our local community.

Please understand that we have a limit to what we are able to commit and all requests are considered on an individual basis.​
If you are aware of a local charity, individual or cause who may benefit from our support, then please complete our funding application form (in PDF format) or here in Word format and email it to finance[at]ospreyinns.co.uk (or email us if you have enquiries about this process) and we will see if we can help.

What sort of initiative?

Well, take a look below at just a few of the funding recipients via our sister inn, the Galloping Horse in Harrington. We look forward to hearing who our Dockray customers think we should support!

A wonderful local cause, Healthy Hopes currently offer a wide range of outstanding support sessions. Our funding helps cover the Workington weekly drop-in session, which helps socially isolated vulnerable people in our community.

We are delighted to sponsor Workington Reds Junior U7s football team with their kit and equipment and wish them every success for the forthcoming season!

The Galloper is donating a “Tramper” to the Calvert Trust at Bassenthwaite. This vehicle is designed to help the elderly and disabled to get around the lake and view the nesting ospreys.
