Huge beer festival benefits groups

A TRIO of groups have been given a cash boost after last summer’s Rastrick Beer festival.

Real ale fans from across the country went along.

More than £4,000 was raised. £3,000 was given to St John’s church, which hosted the event.

Another £1,000 was split between Brighouse Rest Centre, Turning Point and Together for Looked After children. Each were given £325 by Rev Matthew Pollard.

Chairman Roger Ellis said: “We are absolutely delighted to support local organisations.”
