Langham brews up funding for South Downs National Park
December 4, 2017
Award winning South Downs’ brewery Langham have renamed their best bitter after the National Park with 5p from every bottle of South Downs best-bitter sold going to support the new charity for the National Park.
Langham Brewery are the first corporate partners for the South Downs National Park Trust, which launched in October 2017. As well as relaunching the South Downs best-bitter they have also helped to raise £647.86 for the Trust’s first campaign, Mend our Way, to fix broken sections of the South Downs Way through their Live at Langham music events.
Julie Fawcett, Chair of the new South Downs National Park Trust, said:
“Langham Brewery are award-winning local producers, based right in the heart of the National Park – it would be hard to find a more a natural partner for our new charity. Look out for the new South Downs best bitter labels at local stores and pubs or buy it from the brewery itself!”
Lesley Foulkes, who co-owns Langham Brewery with James Berrow, said:
“All of us at Langhams are thrilled to be the first corporate partner of the Trust. Our friendly, award-winning microbrewery nestles in the South Downs and we look forward to collaborating with the South Downs National Park Trust to raise awareness of the fabulous countryside that surrounds us and to lead the way in raising funds to conserve the much loved South Downs Way for future generations.”
The South Downs National Park Trust is an independent charity but will be supported by South Downs National Park Authority staff for its first three years – ensuring that funds raised can be focused on work in the National Park.
