It’s nearly B-Day – as the county’s most unlikely criminals are to be Banged-up – including Beer&Co’s Greg Cooper (but hopefully not for long…if we can raise bail in support of local charity Homestart Suffolk).
Beer&Co. set-out with the aim of creating events that they themselves would love to attend – events of a distinct difference and quality – and they stuck by this principal. They were also sure that they wanted to support the local community – with a social responsibility – as actively as they could.
Beer&Co. are now really pleased to be able to say that they are now starting to achieve this goal, with the news that they have partnered with local Charity ‘Homestart Suffolk‘. This partnership will see Homestart Suffolk playing an active role in Beer&Co.’s forthcoming Saints Maritime Beer Festival 2017, – with the aim of raising funds in support of the fantastic work that the charity does with vulnerable families in Suffolk.
The partnership came about through a conversation with BBC Suffolk DJ and Grapvine contributor Stephen ‘Foz’ Foster, who just happens to be a patron of the charity. Foz told Beer&Co. about the amazing work that the charity is doing and got the two parties talking. Once they met with Fundraising Officer Ella Heeney – the match was never in doubt!
And while we will have to wait till August for the Festival, Beer&Co. are really pleased to be able to help the charities fundraising efforts before this, through their very scarily sounding – ‘JAIL & BAIL’ event on Friday 24th March 2017.
In escence, Beer&Co. Director Greg Cooper (+ other jail-birds from local company’s) will be handcuffed (for real) by two Police Officers on this date and not released until bail is achieved. Obviously the aim is to raise as much money as they can for ‘bail’ before, during and after the event itself, and hope that you can help? Simply visit Greg’s my-donate page.
