Each year Worcester Beer, Cider and Perry festival supports a number of charities. We encourage our visitors to donate unused tokens at the end of the festival.
In 2012 our festival charities were:
Midlands Air Ambulance
Midlands Air Ambulance is the only Charity responsible for funding and operating three Air Ambulances serving the communities of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK.
Since 1991, the Charity has responded to more than 34,000 missions averaging 3,000 per year or nearly ten each day, making it one of the longest established and busiest Air Ambulance organisations in the UK.
St Richard's Hospice
St Richard’s Hospice cares for patients and families in Worcestershire who are living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Each year we give free care and support to around 2,300 patients and their families – helping them towards the best quality of life possible.
Cancer Research UK
The world's leading charity dedicated to saving lives through research.
We have saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
