LEISURE: Beer and cider fest is a hit for AWASA and School in a Bag
THE Quicksilver Mail pub in Yeovil played host to a beer and cider festival on Friday (July 28, 2017) in aid of the School in a Bag charity.
The event was organised by the AgustaWestland Apprentice and Student Association team – better known as AWASA - and was well-supported by work colleagues, friends and supporters.
As well as enjoying some fine beer and cider the festival-goers were able to enjoy live music with Craig and Alex Priddice, Molly-Ann, Jackdaw, OSV and Hundred Faces.
Among the beer and cider providers were Yeovil Ales, Ham Hill Cider and Harry’s Cider Company.
AWASA has the School in a Bag initiative as its charity of the year and has held a number of fundraising events.
School in a Bag is part of the Piers Simon Appeal which was formed soon after the Boxing Day Asian Tsunami of 2004 which killed thousands of people including former Preston School and Yeovil College student Piers Simon.
So far more than 80,000 SchoolBags have been funded with around 77,000 bags having been delivered to help poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster-affected children throughout the world.
A SchoolBag contains a drinks bottle, a lunchbox and fork/spoon, pencils, colouring pencils, a maths set, exercise books, a ruler and a pencil case containing four blue, four black and two red biro pens.
A number of the School in a Bag team attended the beer and cider festival at the Quicksilver to show their support and thanks to AWASA.
