Doncaster CAMRA
Introduction

Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 145,000 ordinary drinkers, run by an unpaid, elected National Executive and backed by a small core of professional executives. It speaks for drinkers everywhere in fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, and in attempting to improve quality and to ensure pub standards are raised.

Our branch covers  all of the Doncaster Metropolitan Borough as well as the Isle of Axholme in Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire as far as Goole and a small area of North Yorkshire.

Alzheimer’s Society thanks Doncaster CAMRA for support & fundraising effort at Beer Festival

A thank you to Doncaster & District CAMRA from The Alzheimer’s Society: "The Alzheimer’s Society were delighted to be the beneficiary charity from this year’s Doncaster Beer Festival. This amazing event ran from 24 – 26 April held at Doncaster College and raised vital funds (nearly £700 to-date) for people affected by dementia."

“It was wonderful to attend this wonderful festival and to meet the Bob and to meet other members of Doncaster & District CAMRA Committee. One in three people over 65 will develop dementia. It is a devastating condition and can affect anyone. As a charity we rely on supporters like Doncaster and District CAMRA to help us continue our vital work and lead the fight against dementia. Helping make the UK a better place through our services, research and campaigning” - Simon Spencer – Community Fundraising Support Officer. See article on Alzheimer's Society website.

Rosie Winterton MP - to visit Doncaster Beer Festival

The Campaign for Real Ale has come a long way since it’s foundation all those years ago, but with about 28 pubs closing every week, we need urgent action to save the very places that serve our hard won ale. Doncaster CAMRA is backing the Doncaster Star’s “Save Our Pubs” campaign, and we have organised a Publican’s Forum at 6pm on Thursday 24th April at the Doncaster Beer Festival. We are inviting pub landlords from the local area to come and discuss the issues that affect their pubs with our local MP Rosie Winterton - so that our pubs can not only survive, but thrive.

If you are a local landlord and would like to come along, please email acv@doncastercamra.org.uk to let us know. Anyone else who is interested can keep an eye out for the next edition of the Donny Drinker, where we will have a full write-up of what is discussed at the meeting.
