Worthing Beer Festival raises over £1,000 for Guild Care's Ashdown Centre

Arun and Adur CAMRA’s Worthing Beer Festival had Guild Care as its chosen charity and raised an amazing £1,085 for its Ashdown Centre service which supports children and young adults with disabilities and additional needs.

The event, which was held on 20th and 21st October at Worthing Assembly Hall was a great success, hosting a wide selection of ale, cider and perry, food and cheeses and even had a sing-a- long with the Wurlitzer.

Peter Brereton, Chairman of Arun and Adur CAMRA said, “It has been a privilege to be associated with the Guild Care and we are delighted that we were able to raise funds to support the Ashdown Centre. Arun and Adur CAMRA are delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile local cause in providing outdoor play equipment for children with disabilities. The equipment will not only support group play but provide individual development and outdoor exercise opportunities.

The money raised will go directly to Guild Care’s Ashdown Centre to purchase outdoor toys and equipment for which the benefits of outdoor play help the young people to develop team skills, confidence building and a sense of belonging and purpose.
