A festive beer advent raffle to raise vital funds for The Trussell Trust

Instead of posting about festive beers throughout December, Guild member, Kimberley Owen is dedicating her Instagram feed to hosting an advent calendar-style raffle in aid of raising emergency funds for The Trussell Trust.

The charity anticipates it will give out 700,000 food parcels this winter, 275,000 of which will be for children. The soaring cost of living means more and more people are being forced to use food banks and this Christmas, Trussell Trust has launched an emergency appeal.

Raffle tickets are £5 for 1 entry or £10 for 3 entries – all you have to do, is donate a chosen amount and your entry (or entries) will be thrown into the hat for your chance to win a prize each day!

Daily prizes are revealed every day at 8am via Kimberley’s Instagram and daily winner’s are picked every night on Instagram Live at 8pm. 

So far, Kimberley’s has amassed prizes worth over £2000 from over and the raffle itself has raised £2596 for Trussell Trust. 

Kimberley adds: “Originally I intended to do a 12 days of Christmas raffle, but it quickly spiralled into a full advent calendar style raffle running until Christmas Eve , then it has been extended for a third time because everyone has been so generous! The raffle will now run until 31st December where I’ll host an hour long Instagram Live giving away lots of prizes as an amazing way to conclude things. Thanks to everyone that’s donated so far – it really means a lot.”

Over 35 breweries and companies in the industry have donated to the raffle so far. To see the entire prize haul and to also get a raffle ticket, please visit Kimberley’s Just Giving page:
