The St Austell Brewery Charitable Trust, which supports charities across the South West, has donated £500 to the Catholic Children’s Society (Plymouth). The money has been used to provide a new lap top and other resources for their newly appointed parent facilitator. The Society offers the PATCHWORK parenting programme in Catholic Schools throughout Cornwall, Devon and Dorset to parents with children of all ages.
The presentation of a cheque took place on Thursday 02 June at one of the brewery’s pubs, the Abbey Inn in Buckfast.
The presentation was made by trustee, Marc Bishop to the chairman of the Catholic Children’s Society Peter McWilliam. Marc Bishop said: “The Charitable Trust raises money thanks to the huge amount of effort and goodwill our fundraisers and supporters put in, most of whom are St Austell Brewery staff and landlords who donate their own time to stage the activities and events that generate valuable funds.”
