A 179-year-old family brewery has toasted the memory of a late employee through its ‘Donate with Dizzy’ charity campaign.

Stockport-based Robinsons Brewery donated 5p to us for every pint of its popular Dizzy Blonde beer sold over a three-month period.

Nine pubs nominated us as their chosen charity, raising £392.40 for St Ann’s which cared for Margaret Clarke, from Romiley.

Margaret was a patient here and died of cancer in January, aged 66. She was Telesales Manager for more than 12 years, based at the brewery’s bottling plant in Bredbury.

Gill Yates, Brands Manager at Robinsons, said: “Margaret was much loved by her family and work colleagues at Robinsons, so it was appropriate that St Ann’s Hospice was one of the charities chosen for this year’s ‘Donate with Dizzy’ campaign involving our fastest growing cask beer.”

“We’d like to thank our customers and pubs for their kind contributions towards such a good cause. Robinsons Brewery and St Ann’s Hospice are both long-established well-known names in Stockport and beyond, so it’s nice that we can come together to raise money for such a great charity.”

Annabel Toleman, Corporate Fundraiser at St Ann’s, said: “We’re delighted that Robinsons Brewery and their pubs have supported us in this way. As a charity, we rely on help from our local communities to enable us to continue to provide specialist palliative care for patients and look after their loved ones and carers. We care for people from across Greater Manchester at a time when they need us most.”
