Rotherham: Charities benefit from ale and music festival

Have your say

Organisers of The Rotherham Real Ale and Music Festival proved that ‘there’s no place like Rome’, after donning togas to celebrate raising £40,000 for local good causes at this year’s event.

The proceeds of ‘Baa’sil Goes West’, the 21st time that the popular four-day event has taken place, will be divided equally between Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, the Rotherham Hospice, Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity and the Magna educational trust, with each receiving a £10,000 share from the proceeds raised at the event.
