Upton Noble Beer Festival raises funds for Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance

January 9, 2017 by Lara Lucas

DAN Hurring, Chairman of Upton Noble Beer Festival, presented a cheque for £180 to Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance representative Helen Jefferis recently. The money was raised during September’s beer festival, with the local Air Ambulance one of three charities to benefit from the event’s funds.

Dan Hurring said: “The Air Ambulance means a lot to local people. Not long ago it attended someone who had suffered a serious accident in our own village, so to raise funds for such a great cause gives us a great deal of satisfaction. It makes organising the festival incredibly worthwhile when we see that we can contribute to charities so close to villagers’ hearts.”
