  • Wold Top 20th anniversary open day – Saturday 3 June, 10am to 4pm. A family-friendly day with various stalls, activities, food and drink.
  • There will also be a number of staff fundraising initiatives and challenges throughout the year.

Kate Balchin, brewery director, said: “Saint Catherine’s is a cause close to our hearts as they cared for our founder Gill as she came to the end of her battle with cancer in 2020. The support they give and work they do in this area is amazing and we’re proud to be supporting them in as many ways as we can this year.”

Matt Porter, of Sportive HQ, is organising the cycle event in May and has given five free places to anyone who would like to ride in aid of Saint Catherine’s, with a minimum sponsorship of £100.

Matt said: “It’s a completely different type of sportive as it starts in the afternoon. There’s such a magnificent sunset at Wold Top Brewery that we wanted to showcase.

“This is our first year raising funds for Saint Catherine’s and we have over 100 people signed up so far, so it promises to be a great event.”

Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are really thrilled that Wold Top and Sportive HQ are supporting us in raising much-needed funds for hospice care. We are looking forward to working together during 2023 and with all the events planned so far, it looks like it will be a year to remember.”
