Fund Raisers for Beaufort Arms Favourite Causes

January saw two fund raisers for a couple of the Beaufort’s favourite
causes – St Wulfstan (the first to get slavery banned in Bristol in the 11th
Century) and the Long John Silver Trust.

The first managed to raise £100 for St Mary’s Church, Hawkesbury, on the
occasion of Wulfstan’s Saints Day (January 19th) with a banquet in his
honour in the pub.

The second, on Thursday 28th January, with a brewery visit to Cotswold
Spring’s and Severn Vale’s magnificent new home at Tortworth which raised £80 for
LJST (thanks mostly to their generosity).

The picture shows our very own Bishop of Wigan, Stan
Fillingham, getting a chair lift at the brewery with bearers Tony Harcourt
and brewery owner Mark Francombe.

Stan and Tony also appeared at our Wulfstan feast which featured Steve
Hammond’s picture / music compilation of the famous Wulfstan Windows.

Many thanks to all who attended and contributed to the two events. On the
latter we had a terrific reception at the Salutation at Ham and once again
Westward Travel ably provided the transport.

Beer expert Tom Salt provided the picture – thanks again,

Mark the landlord.
