The team has been together for 6 years now and has 25 players who have disabilities or impairments which include Learning Disabilities, Autism, Physical Disabilities and Mental Health issues. As a result, Braveherts are one of 12 teams to be invited to play in the 2017 world mixed ability tournament in Spain this month. The £1500 helped to get them and the volunteers to Spain!

Good luck guys x

 

Baldock Town Youth Football Club Donation

£1,150 was donated to Baldock Town Youth Football club by the Baldock Independent Beer Festival for their assistance and support in the running of the 2017 Beer Festival event. The club provided children’s entertainment during Saturday and Sunday with a shooting practice game and also supported the sales of the festival glasses. Massive thanks to all who took part and assisted over the weekend.

We thought that the club would be using the money to get some Galactico signings from Real Madrid in the summer but they have been very sensible and the money will be used to support the club during the 2017/2018 season by providing essential kit and equipment to various teams at the club, including costs associated with the preparation of safe pitches.

Oh well, Ronaldo was a bit too old for the team anyway.

Singing Aloud Donation

Singing Aloud, the choir that performed on Sunday have donated their performance fee to the Garden House Hospice. We doubled it and so were able to gift £200 in total. Here’s a picture of Kate handing over the cheque before going on a massive spending spree at the Garden House Hospice shop!

10 years of beer and good causes!

Beer Festival KnightIt’s  just under 6 weeks until this year’s festival kicks off on Friday 28th April. We are all working hard to make the 10th Festival the best yet.

So, it will be 10 years since we were challenged to put on a festival and slowly we have grown from that 1st festival  where our objective was to have some fun and show we could do it, to now being a fully fledged charity event raising money for local good causes.

Since 2008, we have managed to donate  over £34,000 to good causes locally. This has ranged from providing and resources to local schools, helping local charities and sports groups, through to donations to the Garden House Hospice and Lister Hospital.

We look forward to seeing all of you at this years festival. Get there early as the beer is guaranteed to fly off the shelves.

See you there!
