Presentation at Elgood’s Brewery to the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House

Wisbech Brewers, Elgood & Sons, were delighted to hand over a cheque for £1,500 to Rebekah Mills of Tapping House at the Brewery’s Christmas Open Weekend.

A raffle and other competitions held over the course of the weekend realised £200.  Prizes included a homemade Christmas Cake and Christmas Pudding, donated by Elgood’s employee Sheila Wright, who first came up with the idea of holding a raffle in support of the Hospice.  Other prizes included a ham donated by Plater’s Family Butchers of Wisbech, a hamper donated by the Brewery and several items donated by the various Craft Stall holders.

The proceeds from the weekend were added to those raised at various other events throughout the year, including the annual Jazz in the Garden afternoon organised by Dave & Sheila Dyer, which raised £450; donations and booking fees from the Craft Fairs in May and September, £490; Elgood’s Beer Festival, £221; plus several other individual donations.

Rebekah Mills of the Norfolk Hospice said, “We are extremely grateful to Elgood’s for their continued support over the years.  It was a pleasure to be invited to the annual Open Weekend once again and to receive a cheque for £1,500 for their fundraising efforts this year.  The Weekend, like all of the events organised by Elgood’s, is a wonderful event and it was lovely to see so many people there.”

Elgood’s Beer Festival a Great Success

We are delighted to report a very successful Beer Festival this year.  More than 900 people attended over the three days of the festival.  Over 150 beers were available, offering everything from refreshing low-alcohol ales to stunning high ABV porters and stouts.

Entertainment was provided by old favourites Dr Busker and Bewildered as well as up and coming local band Animal Bar.  Local folk band The Rusty Relics played for the Saturday afternoon session and were very well received.

The festival, which is in its 7th year, is organised on a not-for-profit basis, using the beers entered for the SIBA East annual beer competition.  All money raised is donated to local charities.  This year £2,000 will be shared between Ravenswood Pet Rescue, Rare Brain Tumour Research, Norfolk Hospice Tapping House and the Ferry Project.

Next year’s festival has already been booked for Thursday 20th to Saturday 22nd September 2018.
