Hundreds of pounds raised at a beer festival have been handed over to a charity as preparations begin for this year’s event.
Organisers of the Tynemouth Beer Festival last week presented a cheque for £700 to Libby Nolan, of the Children’s Foundation, following a successful 2012 event.
Preparations are now under way for this year’s beer festival, which will take place from Thursday, September 19, to Saturday, September 21, at Tynemouth Cricket Club, Preston Avenue, North Shields.
The event – which will support the Percy Hedley Foundation – will see more than 80 beers and 20 ciders and perries.
