Beer Festival raises £2,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital

Visitors to the recent Sheffield Beer Festival proved just as generous as they were thirsty, as a combination of cash collections, donations of unused beer tickets, and a contribution from Sheffield branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) saw this year’s charity total reach £2,000.

Press Officer Paul Crofts said “It’s a fantastic sum to raise for such a good charity. It was far more than we anticipated, and shows how much local people think of the Sheffield Children’s Hospital”

The 4-day festival took place at Kelham Island Museum in October, and featured over 300 different beers and ciders, as well as live music and an array of street food vendors.

Community Fundraiser for The Children’s Hospital Charity, Cheryl Davidson said, “We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated at Sheffield Beer Festival. To raise so much at the event really will make a difference to all of our patients and their families at Sheffield Children’s Hospital
