Cheers to another successful Plumbco Beer Festival!

We held our annual beer festival in a marquee at the Plumbco HQ in Wellingborough, which was bigger and better than previous years thanks to the boys at Big Top!

We were completely over-whelmed with the turnout over this two day event 27th and 28th May.

There was over 30 local real ales on offer and an exceptional Hog Roast too!

We roped in the help of some live musicians, with thanks to Luke the Drifter, the Shannondores’, The Jail Breakers and Slim 47. Who helped us make the event what it turned out to be, a bl**dy good knees up for a bl**dy good cause!

We held the event to raise money for two causes close to our hearts. The first, Glamis Hall, a community centre on the Queensway Estate in Wellingborough. It has a day centre for the over 50’s that provides community care for the residents of Wellingborough and its surrounding areas. The work they do is incredible and we have been supporting these guys for many years now, with many more years to come. Here’s a link to their website for more information: http://www.glamishall.org.uk

And secondly, the Talbot Butler Ward at Northampton General Hospital. This was chosen following our directors’ (Andrew Goodey) diagnosis of Leukaemia in 2016. It was thanks to the care he received at the hospital that he beat it following a year-long course of treatment. Andrew wanted to use the event to say thank you for the exceptional care and support he received from the hospital’s medical staff.

At the expense of some very sore heads the morning after, the event raised a grand total of £9,000 to be split between the chosen causes.

We hope to hold another Beer Festival next year too!
