Bateman's beer boosts cancer charity

Added: Tuesday, April 3rd 2012

Bateman’s Brewery in Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, will stage a beer festival with a difference on 13 and 14 April – for every pint sold, Bateman’s will donate money to the health charity Walk the Walk, which supports research, campaigns and projects for cancer patients.

The festival will be staged at Bateman’s Visitor Centre and beers from all round Britain will be on offer, as well as the brewery’s own Good Honest Ales. The event will start on 13 April at 6.30pm with Dr Busker and his traditional beer festival band and will continue on the 14th from 11am-6pm.

Bateman’s is urging support for Walk the Walk in light of the fact that one in eight women expect to experience some form of breast cancer while more and more men are being diagnosed. Walk the Walk emphasises the importance of maintaining healthy weight and an active lifestyle.

One of the main events the charity is organising is Moonwalk on 12 May in London. 17,000 people will gather in Hyde Park then power through the streets from midnight in rock ‘n roll bras for 26 miles. Among those taking part will be Jacyln Bateman, Bateman’s marketing director, who is now in strict training for the event. She hopes to raise £4,000 for the charity. See her fundraising page:
