Brew­ery raises cheer for ap­peal

Macclesfield Express - - NEWS -

A BREW­ERY has teamed up with the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion to raise the pro­file of a Poppy Ap­peal.

The Win­cle Beer Co., based in Win­cle, near Mac­cles­field, has pro­duced Stan­dard Bearer, a 4.0 per­cent ABV ale.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion will see at least 75 casks of the ale sold dur­ing the Le­gion’s an­nual Poppy Ap­peal, which runs un­til Sun­day, Novem­ber 12.

The face of Neil Deuville, Hay­field RBL branch’s long-serv­ing stan­dard bearer, ap­pears on the pump clip.

Giles Mead­ows, head brewer, said: “Ev­ery cask of the char­ac­ter­ful au­tum­nal ale sold will raise at least £10 for the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion.

“This will sup­port the work of pro­vid­ing life­long sup­port for the Armed Forces com­mu­nity - serv­ing men and women, vet­er­ans, and their fam­i­lies.

“We look for­ward to pre­sent­ing a cheque to the Hay­field branch at the end of the ap­peal.”

The Rev John Hudghton, RAF vet­eran and chap­lain of the Hay­field RBL branch, has even blessed the new brew.

He said: “We are very pleased to help raise vi­tal fund­ing for the Le­gion in this way. It is also a real plea­sure to ac­knowl­edge the re­gion’s pubs and their cus­tomers for their sup­port.”
