World War 1 Centenary Ales
We occasionally brew a beer for charity, donating a small sum from each bottle (or pint) sold to a designated charity.
In the past we have supported Daft as a Brush (cancer patient transportation), Orchid (fighting male cancer) and others.
But, for the past year we have been supporting the North East War Memorials Project (NEWMP) registered charity number 1113088 www.newmp.org.uk
The aims of the project
The North-East War Memorials Project was established to record every War Memorial located in the historic counties of Northumberland, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Durham with the addition of any areas included by the 1974 boundary changes.
The aims of the Project – which is a registered Charity are to:
• Educate the public
• Assist historical research for the public benefit
• Foster patriotism and good citizenship by publishing and maintaining an inventory and catalogue of War Memorials in the North East of England.
These aims will be achieved by continually recording, documenting and researching these memorials and by these means extending the existing archive.
So far we have raised several thousand pounds and there is still stock left to sell if you want to visit our shop page which redirects you to Northumbrian Gifts.
