Tuesday (2 April 2014) sees Newcastle United Supporters’ Trust and Hadrian Border Brewery brew for the fourth time their popular charity beer “Black & White Ale”, whose proceeds are shared between two regional charities. 

Since the beer was launched in May 2013, the Trust and Hadrian Border Brewery has donated almost £800 to local charities the Toma Fund and Northern Money.

Michael Thewlis, from the Trust said:
“Our members want us to play an active role in supporting our local communities and organisations to help raise their profile and we feel that this specially-brewed beer helps us to do that.”

“Our association with Hadrian Border has been brilliant and by the time the last pint of this beer sells, we will have helped raise more than £1,000 for our two local charities.”

The beer, available across the region, is brewed by Newcastle-based Hadrian Border Brewery. The award-winning local brewery are donating 5p from every pint sold to be shared between the Toma Fund and Northern Money, the region’s credit union signposting service.

Martin Hammill, brewery manager at Hadrian Border Brewery said:

“We got involved with this venture with the Trust because as a season ticket holder at St James’ Park and I wanted to get behind the work of the Trust and their support of worthy local organisations.”

“The brewery donates 5p from every pint of “Black and White Ale” back to the Trust so they can distribute it among their chosen charities and we expect it to quickly sell out, just as it has done on the other three occasions we have brewed the beer.”

Gavin Hennessey of Northern Money, said:

“We are really pleased to continue our involvement with the Trust to help us spread the word about the range of financial services available in our communities across the north east. Our network of over 20 credit unions in the region provide advice on saving and borrowing, and our savings and loan rates are among some of the most competitive around.”

Andrea Thompson, Founder of Toma Fund said:

“Toma Fund is delighted to be associated with the Newcastle United Supporters’ Trust again.  This is a fabulous initiative and I am sure it will be popular not just with fans but with everyone who has an association with the north east.”

“The money raised will help Toma Fund to support children, young people and their families in the region who are living through treatment for childhood cancers.”
