Charities benefit from sell out open day – Wold Top Brewery

Charities benefit from sell out open day

Posted by Wold Top Brewery on

An award-winning East Yorkshire micro brewery is celebrating after raising a record ?2000 at a recent open day.

The open day coincided with the opening of the TV featured garden at Hunmanby Grange, the farm that?s home to Wold Top Brewery at Wold Newton, near Driffield.

Over 500 visitors enjoyed the beautiful and interesting garden that brewery co-owner Gill Mellor has created despite its elevated, exposed position high on the Yorkshire Wolds and a challenging chalky soil.? The adjoining brewery was equally busy as people took a tour of one of Yorkshire?s leading micro-breweries and benefited from the open day offers.

Beneficiaries of the open day included the National Garden Scheme that supports nursing, caring and gardening charities, St. Cuthbert?s Church in nearby Burton Fleming and the brewery?s charity of the year, Candlelighters, the Leeds children?s cancer charity.

Brewery owners Tom and Gill Mellor were delighted with the amount raised; ?It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the brewery, thegarden and the spectacular Wolds views and especially rewarding to have raised so much for these three charities.? said Gill ?but next year I think we?ll spread it over a weekend!?
