A Norfolk independent has marked its 100th anniversary by brewing its own beer and will make a donation to a local children’s charity for every pint sold.
Dipple & Conway partnered with Fat Cat Brewery to create its Cat’s Eyes centenary ale, which will be served at the Norwich Beer Festival next month, with 10p from every pint sold going to Break.
The opticians has supported Break, a local charity for vulnerable children, young people and families across East Anglia, for a number of years, having raised £20,000 for the organisation to date.
The fundraising initiative was launched by BT Vision’s Premier League football presenter and patron of Brake, Jake Humphrey.
Speaking about the opticians support for the charity, director of Dipple & Conway, Damien Conway, said: “Over the past five or six years we have raised £20,000 for Break through cycling events, the London Marathon, collecting tins and more. My brothers and I have several children between us, family life has always been very important to us. We like to be able to acknowledge that by doing our bit to help those who have been dealt a less fortunate hand in life.”
