Beer Bash cash boost

Issue 542



Cheques worth thousands of pounds were handed to charities from funds raised by Roberttown’s real ale festival.



Organisers of the event, dubbed the Bobtown Beer Bash, distributed the cash at a presentation night at the Old Colonial pub in Mirfield.



Benefactors were Roberttown Community Centre, All Saints Church, Kirkwood Hospice, armed forces charity Battleback, and the Ponderosa therapeutic centre.



Work organising next year’s festival on Saturday July 27 is under way. Festival chairman Malcolm Firth said: “It's gratifying that the hard work organising the festival benefits such important causes.



“It’s important that much of the money from what is a great community event goes back to the Roberttown area. But it’s also important that Kirkwood Hospice and Battleback, who directly or indirectly affect the lives of many local people, should benefit too.”
