Branch charity benefits from beer festival donation

Our Branch Charity for 2013, the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB), were delighted to be chosen by the branch and report that they are positive their profile has been helped by their attendance throughout the 36th Norwich Beer Festival in October.

Also through the generous donations of unused beer cards, as well as coins and notes given during the week of the festival, NNAB fundraiser Jeremy Goss said they were delighted with the record breaking total of £5,000, much needed cash which will be used to assist the lives of blind people throughout Norfolk.

Jeremy said he had never been to a beer festival before, let alone Norwich’s long-running event, indeed he had never had real ale before being served a small taster of a light, pale ale about which he said “actually that’s really nice!”.

A presentation of the cheque from the Norwich & Norfolk CAMRA branch will be arranged for early next year.
