Beer lovers are being offered the chance to combine their appreciation of real ale with helping local families this summer.

Rooster’s Brewery, based in Knaresborough, is to donate ten pence from the sale of every pint of its guest ale, White Rose, to Saint Michael’s Hospice during August.

The limited edition pale session ale has been specially brewed to celebrate Yorkshire Day on Wednesday, August 1.

Tom Fozard, commercial manager at the family-run brewery, said: “Harrogate has a fantastic pub scene and we’re confident that White Rose will be a real hit with local ale drinkers.

“Saint Michael’s is a remarkable local cause and we hope our customers will join us in raising a glass to the sterling work they do.”

All the profits raised will be used to help the Hornbeam Park-based hospice continue to provide specialist care and support to local people living with terminal illness and bereavement.

Tony Collins, chief executive of Saint Michael’s, said: “We’re delighted to have the support of Roosters with this creative fundraising initiative. Their support will help us to respond to the increasing numbers of local people requesting our help.”

More than 80 per cent of the £3.8m Saint Michael’s needs each year to provide its vital services comes from voluntary contributions and fundraising.
