Age UK Norwich announced as charity partner of the Great British Beer Festival Winter

Age UK Norwich has been chosen as the charity partner of the Great British Beer Festival Winter which will be held in Norwich from 20-24 February 2018.

Beer enthusiasts will be able to show their support for the charity by donating coins or remaining beer tokens to collection boxes and buckets, which will be dotted all around the festival venue.

Age UK Norwich will also have a stand in Blackfriars’ Hall, where they will speak to festival-goers about their important work caring for over 50 vulnerable people in the local area.

Martin Ward, Great British Beer Festival Winter organiser says: “Getting older is one thing we all have in common, and it is important that we support the older and more vulnerable of our society.

We are delighted to be partnered with Age UK Norwich, a fantastic charity that does essential work for older people, both nationally and right here in Norwich. It was important to us to find a charity that operates on a local level, to give back to the beautiful city that is hosting the Great British Beer Festival Winter.”

At all of their festivals, CAMRA includes a charity partner at all of its festivals so that visitors can combine the fun of a festival with helping vital causes.
