Webbox uses tasty tipple to raise funds for charity

A pet food brand has raised funds for charity by creating its very own beer. Webbox joined forces with Bowland Brewery to make a special tipple for a charity Beer Festival.

The Lancashire based businesses created the Mutts Nuts ale especially for Blackburn Beer Festival, a fund-raising event held By Blackburn Youth Zone. A registered charity, Blackburn Youth Zone opens its doors to 3,000 members aged 8-18 offering them a safe and exciting environment in which to spend their spare time.

Webbox parent company, Pets Choice, has been patrons of the Youth Zone for several years, often working on many fundraising projects for the charity and has been a headline sponsor of the Beer Festival for the last two years.

In total the 2017 Blackburn, Beer Festival raised £26,000 to keep Blackburn Youth Zone open seven days a week. Blackburn Youth Zone provides young people with somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to – for just 50p per visit.

Tony Raeburn, CEO of Webbox, commented: “We are glad to be involved in the Beer Festival for a second year as it’s such a great event for a great cause.

“We thought having a Webbox beer would be lots of fun and we held a competition for all of our employees asking them to name the beer and selected the best one. The competition created a buzz around the business and winners of the tickets enjoyed a fantastic day out at the Beer Festival.”
