Wisbech Brewers, Elgood & Sons, were delighted to hand over a cheque for £1 ,045.50 to Andrew Hawkins of Tapping House at the Brewery’s Christmas event on Sunday 4th December.
A raffle and “guess the weight of the cake” competition held over the course of the weekend’s events raised £146. Prizes included Christmas cakes and a Christmas pudding, kindly made & donated by Sheila Wright of Sutton St James, as well as a selection of items donated by Elgood’s, RM Plater Family Butcher and stallholders at the Craft Fair.
Fund-raising for Tapping House carried on throughout the year, with contributions from stallholders at the May & September Craft Fairs held in the Brewery Gardens (£420) and a raffle held at the Wisbech Jazz Club event on Fathers’ Day last June, organised by Dave & Sheila Dyer, which raised £277.50.
Further donations were given by garden visitors, brewery staff, etc.
Jessica Walker of the Norfolk Hospice said; “Everyone at Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House is extremely grateful for the continued support provided by the staff and visitors at Elgood’ s Brewery. All the funds raised go directly to providing vital care to people with life-limiting illnesses in the local community.”
