Beer festival out to help hospice charity

Business owners Mac and Jane McHugh have announced that HospiceCare North Northumberland will be the beneficiary for their latest annual beer festival.

Alnmouth Beer Festival is now in its sixth year, and so far, it has raised in excess of £13,000 for the military charity Help for Heroes.

However, this year Mac and Jane decided that they wanted to donate the proceeds of their event to a charity based in Northumberland.

The festival takes place at the Red Lion pub tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are £10, including a commemorative glass and three tokens.

There will be various events including a beer and burger night tomorrow and a band night on Saturday.
