An Attleborough brewery has thanked the region’s publicans, shops and consumers for their support, after donating over £2,200 to charity following a year-long campaign.
The Wolf Brewery, which is based at Decoy Farm, in Norwich Road, presented a cheque for £2,267 to the Cavell Nurses’ Trust, raised through collecting 5p from each sale of a pint or bottle of Edith Cavell Ale during 2015.
Almost 45,000 pints of the ale were sold, contributing towards the Centenary Appeal of the charity, which supports nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants.
Steven Moralee, Head of Trusts and Major Gifts at Cavell Nurses’ Trust, said: “We are extremely grateful to the Wolf Brewery for their donation and continuing support.
“Raising a glass of Edith Cavell Ale is a fantastic way to celebrate the life of this heroic nurse and support nurses who are facing hardship today.”
The total includes a donation from Beers of Europe, Britain’s biggest beer shop.
Simon Davey, a sales representative at The Wolf Brewery, told the Diss Express: “We wanted to raise as much money for the Cavell Trust as possible, as the anniversary of her death is a reminder of the sacrifices she made for other people. It’s gone down an absolute storm.”
