Facts and Figures
Donations to Charity
The Charity Box contained £1628.64 in unused tokens donated by our customers. Because of the all the hard work given by our unpaid volunteers, the Festival managed to make a modest net surplus and can therefore make a further direct donation of at least £1060.
The total of at least £2688.64 will then be equally divided between the 2005 Festival's charities: County Air Ambulance, Worcestershire Lifestyles and Kaleidoscope Breakaway in Malvern (for swimming sessions in the hydrotherapy pool).
New Members of CAMRA
69 new members were signed up, of which 41 were local to the Worcester Branch area and 9 were "youngsters" under 26.
The winner of our "Taste All the Cider and Perry" competition was Duncan Clark from Worcester.
The winner of our "Select A Beer" competition was Richard Waterhouse from Kempsey. He suggested we select Malvern Hills Black Pear - an excellent suggestion which we were more than happy to accept ;-)) .
M Smith from Worcester won the polypin of Malvern Hills Brewery beer from the "Win a Barrel of Beer" competition run by the Worcester News.
