Real Ale fans raised a glass and £300 to help a hospital chairty.

Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre CAMRA members gathered at Blackpool Cricket Club to present a cheque to their Lytham Beer Festival’s nominated charity, The Blue Skies Hospital Fund.

Festival-goers raised over £250 by donating their unused beer tokens, with a donation from the CAMRA branch raising the amount to £300.

CAMRA Pubs Officer Ian Ward said: “As both a current patient of the haematology department at Victoria Hospital and also a CAMRA member, I’m delighted on behalf of the branch to present the Blue Skies Hospitals Fund with this cheque – the donations of customers at the Lytham Beer and Cider Festival in September.”
