Otter Brewery has again raised over £2,000 for The Royal British Legion as part of their ongoing annual support for the Poppy Appeal.
The total was reached through wet sales of Poppy Otter – a winter beer specially created for the occasion by Head Brewer Keith Bennett and sold in West Country pubs throughout November and December.
Otter is now into its 27th year as a family run Devon brewery and is proud to support a number of local charities including The Royal British Legion, Hospiscare, Devon Air Ambulance and The Exeter Foundation as well as many grass sports clubs.
Across bars in Devon, Dorset and Somerset, every time a pint of Poppy Otter was poured the brewery donated 5p straight to charity. A cheque for £2,035 has now been presented to their Devon County Chairman Kevin Jeffery.
Patrick McCaig commented: “A big thank you once again to all our drinkers who did their bit in helping the Poppy Appeal continue the great work they do. We’ve now proudly supported this charity for the last eight years and share a very close personal affinity with the values they hold dear. The fact that our beer can help raise money for them is a great feeling.”
Community Fundraiser for Devon Carol Arnold said: “Otter already do a lot of fundraising for other charities and communities that they care about and we feel privileged to be one of them. We can do something really significant with this donation and look forward to developing our continued association with them in the future.”
