Local children's charity Mosaic has received £3,800 pounds from Dorchester Beerex.

The charity supports bereaved children across Dorset, specialising in one on one care for children who have suffered parental or close family bereavement via counselling and activities.

The money raised by Dorchester Beerex this year will go towards a residential weekend where children can interact with others in their situation.

Mosaic's chief executive Margaret Hannibal said: "This money will make a real difference. It's really important for children who've suffered a loss to meet others and share experiences and remember loved ones, but still have fun.

"By doing this it will help raise the child's self-esteem and reduce the chances of isolation. I would like to sincerely thank Dorchester Beerex for their kind donation."

Rich Gabe from West Dorset CMARA (Campaign for Real Ale), who is on the Beerex committee said: "For me this represents what Dorchester Beerex is all about: promoting real ale whilst helping those in need in our community. I would like to thank all the customers who came along and helped make this donation possible."
