Have a pint and do your bit for charity
11:10am Friday 11th May 2012 in News
BEER-LOVERS in Oxford have the chance to do their bit for charity and have a pint at the same time.
The Oxford West End Beer Festival kicked off yesterday across four venues – The Duke’s Cut, The Honeypot, The Oxford Retreat and The Jam Factory.
A wristband on sale for £5 gives the holder discounted beer and a percentage of the proceeds will go towards Sobell House hospice at the Churchill Hospital in Headington.
James Knox, the landlord of The Duke’s Cut, said: “The idea behind this is to raise money for charity. In the last festival we raised £895.
“There are about 40 beers and eight ciders on over the weekend and I have got some great local ales.”
The festival runs until Sunday.
