As you may well remember, we chose to support the James Brownhill Memorial Fund as our SunFest charity, and after a long counting session we are delighted to announce we helped raise over £2250 for thier cause!
This includes the bucket collections, cake stall, pump clip sales, unused beer tokens, the raffle and the 10p from every pint of Summit brewed. We eneded up brewing just over 10000 pints, and rather nice it was too!
We would like to thank everyone who came down and supported both the festival and the charity, your generosity is much appreciated by all.
Devonshire Cat Gourmet Gala – Silent Auction in aid of Cavendish Cancer Care
Those of you who haven’t been hiding under a toadstool these past few weeks will have spotted the Devonshire Cat Gourmet Gala Night. They have joined forces with Cavendish Cancer Care to host a one-off night of spectacular food and drink on 10th February.
As part of the festivities of the evening, there will be a raffle (which your £5 deposit enters you in to) and a prestigious silent auction with a chance to snap up one of these 3 fantastic prizes. We’d like to open the bidding to EVERYONE – even if you are not attending! Disclaimer: If you don’t like beer the following is probably not for you!
Prize 1: – "Be a brewer for the day". A once in a lifetime opportunity to come and brew your own beer at the award winning Abbeydale Brewery. Yes – the beer will be yours with your name on it and sold by us as part of our "Signature Range" available for 2015.
Prize 2: – "Home Cask or Keg Party". Ever wanted to enjoy the delights of drinking and Abbeydale beer at home at your next house party. Now is your chance and it’s all for a good cause. With extra special thanks to the local company Drinks Now who will deliver, set up and take away everything you need. You just sit there. Charity starts at home, didn’t you know?
Prize 3: – "Beer Tutorial". Come down to the Devonshire Cat with half a dozen mates and have the experts at the pub teach you a topic of your choosing. Wether it be learning how to taste beer in a beer appreciation session, a tour of Belgian bottle beers, or a brief on various beer styles. Sample a bottle/pint each of 6 or 7 different bottles/cask ales and learn some cool stuff you never even knew!
Place your bids now by emailing [email protected] stating Prize 1, 2 or 3 along with your full name & address, telephone number and most importantly your bid amount (£). Bidding will close at 9pm on 10th Febuary 2015 during the night of the gourmet gala. Remember you don’t have to be there to be in it to win it! Best of luck.
Enjoy a three-course gourmet meal cooked with the freshest of seasonal ingredients sourced by our team of chefs from local producers and suppliers.
Don’t do meat? Don’t worry! On the night you will have the choice of vegetarian dishes for all three courses.
Once you have enjoyed your evening, you will be given the opportunity to make an anonymous donation to Cavendish Cancer Care. The amount you donate is up to you. All proceeds from the evening will go to Cavendish Cancer Care and help local families living with cancer.
A £5 deposit per head secures your seat, plus a silent auction will be held too.
