Colchester CAMRA Chairman John Durrant has today handed over a check for £1,795 to Prostate UK, the groups chosen charity for 2019.
The money was raised via cash donations and unspent beer cards from their events last year.
The 13th Colchester Winter Ale Festival takes place this week at the Colchester Arts Center, Wednesday 29th January – Saturday 1st February. Doors open at 12 midday with FREE entry to the event until 3pm.
John Durrant spoke to Actual Radio’s Pete Chapman on Wednesday evening and explained how this year the event is hosting beers from all across the UK rather than just East Anglia.
If you fancy taking a break from the beers you can sample the delights of the ‘Cheese and Pie Man’, who was proving very popular on the first day of the event.
The interview can be heard on the Breakfast show with Pete Chapman Friday 31st January at 9:40am.
