This year’s  Ely Beer Festival, held in January, raised a massive £350 for Branching Out. This money will be put towards our 2018/2019 fundraising campaign. We would like to thank all the organisers of the beer festival for their hard work and we are so grateful for the money you have raised for our campaign.

UPDATE: We have received an additional £50.00 from the organisers of Ely Beer festival, making the total amount received £400.00

Susan Wiggans, General Manager of Branching Out said “Everyone who needs Branching Out’s support are very grateful to The Beer Festival organisers and their supporters for this generous donation.  The money will be going towards our 2018 & 2019 Fundraising Campaign.  We are aiming to raise £12,000.00 to refurbish our workshop, which is used to provide daily support for 33 people with learning disabilities.  From the feedback we receive from people we support and their  families we know how important Branching Out charity is to them, and on their behalf I would like to say Thank You.”
