En­joy pint for a cause

Midland Reporter - - News -

A HARD-earned beer at the end of the work week could do more than quench your thirst if poured from the Guild­ford Ho­tel’s com­mu­nity keg.

The James Street venue’s good deeds ini­tia­tive is rais­ing funds for nom­i­nated char­i­ties and com­mu­nity groups each Fri­day night.

All pro­ceeds from ev­ery $8 pint from the com­mu­nity keg will be do­nated to a cho­sen cause.

The brew, as well as the cause, will ro­tate and re­cently be­gan with Feral Brew­ing sup­port­ing the Swan Dis­tricts Women’s Team.

Funds made from the Baskerville drop will sup­port the club’s Fe­male Foot­ball Path­ways Pro­gram to en­cour­age par­tic­i­pa­tion, ed­u­ca­tion and to de­velop young fe­male coaches.

It will help them buy elite train­ing equip­ment and ap­point spe­cialised coaches, as well as hold a Women’s Game Day at Bassendean Oval.

Team cap­tain Kara Don­nel­lan said the de­vel­op­ment of the younger play­ers was ex­tremely im­por­tant to the club.

“Ob­vi­ously with the new AFL Women’s League we want as many play­ers drafted as possible,” she said.

“It’s fan­tas­tic that the Guild­ford Ho­tel is giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity and it’s just fan­tas­tic to be part of it and we’re very thank­ful as a foot­ball club and the women’s team side of it.”

The ho­tel wants to sup­port lo­cal causes that need “a lit­tle love”, in­clud­ing an in­di­vid­ual, pro­ject, busi­ness, club or event.
