Last weekend’s Celtic Beer Festival raised more than £16k for charity.
The annual shindig beat all previous records, raising money for St Austell Brewery’s Charitable Trust.
Jeremy Mitchell, St Austell Brewery’s director of communications and marketing, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that the festival raised more money than ever before. The event was at capacity by 2pm and inside the Brewery there was a real party atmosphere with everyone coming together to enjoy an array of fine cask and craft ales and live music whilst raising money for local good causes.”
Since it was launched in 2003, St Austell Brewery’s Charitable Trust has raised £300k for local charities and good causes in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. This year’s nominated charities include Little Harbour and Cornwall Hospices.
