The Cavell Nurses' Trust has received more than £2000 from sales of over 45,000 pints of Edith Cavell Ale.
The ale is brewed by the Wolf Brewery based in Norfolk where Edith Cavell, a nurse who was executed in the First World War, grew up. For every pint of the ale sold, 5p was donated to the nursing charity. Around 45,000 pints and bottles of Edith Cavell Ale sold during 2015. As a result of this, the Cavell Trust has received a total of £2267 to help support nurses who need aid.
Steve Moralee, head of trusts and major gifts at Cavell Nurses’ Trust, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to the Wolf Brewery for their donation and continuing support. Raising a glass of Edith Cavell Ale is a fantastic way to celebrate the life of this heroic nurse and support nurses who are facing hardship today.’
The Cavell Nurse's Trust is a charity which assists nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants during times of financial crisis due to factors such as illness, domestic abuse, disability, working poverty and older age.
