Nearly 11 thousand pounds raised during the Beer Festival Charity Weekend has been presented to two good causes.

A cheque for £5,729 has been given to the Children’s Hospice South West, and another for £5,033 to the Seaton Friends Hospiscare@Home service.

Both charities have helped people from the Beer village community and as a result, any fundraising for them is strongly supported by local residents.

The festival, on June 8-10, was crammed with entertainment for all ages, including a bingo night which attracted around 600 people, plenty of live music, real ale, beer and cider, street food, stalls selling crafts and a children’s fancy dress competition.

Lucia Moore from the Seaton and District League of Friends, who fund the Hospiscare@Home service, thanked the Beer Group of Friends who organised the fundraising. “Their imagination and hard work is to be applauded,“ she said. “Their kindness is much appreciated by the nurses who work tirelessly and with huge compassion to ease the lives of patients and their families during their last few weeks.”
