Drinking Beer and Raising Funds For Charity
Article date: 01 May 2009

Customers at 74 Wetherspoon pubs are now able to enjoy a pint of beer and raise funds for a children’s cancer charity – at the same time.

The pubs, spread across Cheshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, South Yorkshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands, will be serving a specially brewed real ale, until Monday 29 June.

Ten pence from the sale of each pint of Fools Gold, brewed exclusively for the pubs by Leicestershire-based Shardlow Brewery, will go directly to Wetherspoon’s chosen charity, CLIC Sargent, helping children with cancer – and their families.

The beer, with its ABV (alcohol by volume) of 4.5 per cent, is described as a smooth, golden ale.

Wetherspoon’s area manager, Paul Draper, who is behind the fund-raising initiative, said: “Real ale is extremely popular at Wetherspoon’s pubs – and I am sure that our customers will enjoy the opportunity to try a new beer and support an excellent charity too.”
