The festival was enjoyed by locals and visitors from all over the UK and Europe, who came to Colne to sample the 90-plus beers and ciders which were on offer.
Hospice community engagement officer, Leah Hooper, thanked CAMRA ar their “wash-up” meeting at The Admiral Lord Rodney in Colne and received a cheque for £7,757.
She said: “Thanks must also go to all the wonderful people and businesses who sponsored a beer barrel at the event, as well as everyone who bought raffle tickets which alone raised over £2,000.
“Finally, thank you to the staff at The Colne Muni for their support and all the brilliant ‘Friends of Pendleside’ volunteers who came along to sell raffle tickets each day.”
