€8000 donated to charity

To top a fantastic year all round we can now confirm that a grand total of €8,000 is to be donated to worthy causes in 2014. €6,000 is being donated to Kerry Cancer Support Group to aid them in running their Health Link Bus and €2,000 is to be given to Scoil Bhreac Chluain for use toward special equipment.

Breda Dyland of KCSG said ‘Can I once again on behalf of “Kerry Cancer Support Group” and the “Kerry Cork Health Link Bus” sincerely thank you all for your generosity and support. What you have done for our organisation will touch many lives and in real terms can keep the bus on the road for up to six weeks. This further broken down can equate to 432 of our users appointments covered. This is the real terms. Think of the difference you have made to the emotional well being of the users and their families giving them the piece of mind knowing that  they have a safe secure and supportive way to attend their treatments in CUH. Many have said that the bus is a travelling support group and your donation will keep that group on the road for another six weeks. Well done. ‘

Thanks

Well it was a record breaking weekend all round in Annascaul for the 2014 Beerfest. We had record crowds, sold out all our events, a Guinness World Record was set and we are set to donate a record amount of money. There really are too many people that have helped us achieve this all to start naming but thank you all!

Thank you also to Crean’s Lager for sponsoring us and helping us achieve our goals and thank you to local businesses and publicans for your continued support. Also a special thanks to Ger our sound guy who did an amazing job for us and look forward to having you back.

We had great performances from Amano, Sumdaze, The Marcelus Wallas &Mundy as well as a great gig from local lad Vinnie Flynn. I am sure we will see you all again in years to come. The sold out food event shone for many but feel free to give us your feedback and suggestions via Facebook, annascaulbeerfest@gmail.com or via our website.

We will provide you with plenty of our own photos tomorrow and reveal details of donations to KCSG and some local causes in coming days and weeks. There are still some t-shirts remaining so please contact us if you would like one and we will even post them to you if needed!

Plans will soon begin to make 2015 even better but for now sit back and enjoy the memories of a memorable 2014 event. Please share and like this so as many people as possible know our appreciation!
