Brew Up raises charity funds

Withycombe people enjoyed a brew for charity at Withycombe Church Hall.

The ‘Big Brew Up’ was held as part of a national event to raise money for the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association.

Tea, coffee, squash and cakes were served, and a raffle was held.

Not only was the main event a success, but the stall was also reopened after the following day’s church service, at which point the remaining cakes and raffle tickets were sold.

An amount of �101 has been raised for the charity, which supports current and former service personnel.

Father Robert Sellers said: “It was a very pleasant event. There are quite a lot of former and serving servicemen around here, so we thought it was the sort of thing we should be doing as they need all the support they can get.”
