Every year, award-winning Harrogate brewery, Rooster’s Brewing Co, based at Hornbeam Park, brews a charity pale ale White Rose, which was launched on Yorkshire Day, August 1. This year, Rooster’s named Harrogate-based hospice care charity, Saint Michael’s Hospice as beneficiary of this beer.
Saint Michael’s Hospice will receive 10p from every pint of White Rose sold, which will go towards caring for people who are living with terminal illnesses and bereavement.
Ian Fozard, Director of Rooster’s Brewing Co, said, “We have always been keen supporters of Saint Michael’s and are delighted that this year they will benefit from the sale of our annual charity beer. They provide a unique and much needed service across the Harrogate district.”
Chief executive of Saint Michael’s, Tony Collins, said: “We’re delighted that Rooster’s Brewing Co, has chosen Saint Michael’s this year. Their support will help us ensure that the increasing number of local people living with a terminal illness or bereavement receive the right care and support. As an independent charity, we rely heavily on the support of our community to rise the almost £6Million needed to provide our vital care.”
