Beer Festival totals & Hidden Gardens!

Well what a brilliant weekend we’ve had…

From Thursday until Saturday we spent all our time with the wonderful folks that are CAMRA at Ipswich Town Football Clubs training pitch. It was the 32nd Ipswich Beer Festival and we were CAMRAs chosen charity.

Then to follow that, on Sunday  we had a delightful afternoon at Grundisburgh’s ‘Hidden Gardens’ event as we were also the chosen charity for their events. See more upcoming events that are part of the GBCHS Horticulture festival at www.gbchs.org.uk or on our events page.

Regarding the Beer Festival, we would like to say a huge thank you to GrapevineLive for helping us provide music at the beer festival, to Stephen Foster for an exciting music quiz and a MASSIVE thanks to all our volunteers who turned up at both events, in all weather, and donated their time and support to make these events as successful as they were. Similarly, a massive thank you to YOU, are loyal and new supporters because thank to you…

In total we have managed to raise a HUGE £1,831.40 this weekend at the Beer Festival, so once again thank you to EVERYONE who dug deep into their pockets. This is a massive amount that will go a long way to helping families in our community. On behalf of all the trustees … THANK YOU xox

Multi-Pub Music Quiz summary!

Well what a FANTASTIC evening we had at the Multi-Pub Music Quiz on the 11th of February!

We have been overwhelmed with the texts, tweets, emails and posts on how much fun everyone had and we are all SO pleased that it was such a success.

If anyone has photos they would like to share with us, please post them to our  Facebook, tweet us on Twitter  or email them to krissy.and.friends@gmail.com. Here is our Gallery so far. 

We are well aware of the communication issues of phoning/texting results to Stephen Foster at the end of the evening and the even bigger problem of trying to get the results back to the pubs. Rest assured, we have learnt from this (and a couple of other things) and this part of the event will be sorted by next year. Thanks everyone for your understanding. Again, thanks again to Foz who did a great job.

By 22:00 on the day, the pubs taking part had collectively raised £1,883.60. WOW! is all we can say!  What’s even better is that you guys have blown us away and continued to give, collect and add to your totals. We have collected today £1,366.52, with another £644 still to come. Therefore, YOU RAISED A GRAND TOTAL OF £2,010.52!!!
