Old Dairy Brewery has raised £630 for the East Kent Hospitals Charity through sales of its new pale ale, Frontline. Old Dairy launched the special edition pale ale back in March, as a tribute to the NHS, and is donating 15p for every bottle sold.

The East Kent Hospitals Charity raises funds for all wards, services, and departments across the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust. The funds contribute towards enhancing the patient and visitor experience and supporting the needs of staff above and beyond government NHS funding.
The Helping Your Hospitals appeal was launched in March. With the help of the local communities and businesses, the charity has been able to fund a whole range of support systems: providing drinks and snacks to teams on the frontline, making improvements to showering and changing facilities, and implementing training programmes to assist with emotional wellbeing.
Danielle Neligan, fundraising and development officer at the East Kent Hospitals Charity, said: “We are delighted to receive such a kind donation from the Old Dairy Brewery, following sales of their Frontline beer.
“These funds will be made available to staff well being projects at the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, and will help us make a significant difference to our incredible frontline teams.”
