Palmers Sailing

Bridport based Palmers Brewery have given nearly £7,000 to help young or disabled people in Dorset enjoy the thrills of sailing.

The money was raised by donating 5p from every pint of draft Palmers Dorset Gold sold in the county.

The Brewers have been supporting the Chesil Trust since 2007 raising over £30,000 for the cause.

On receiving the cheque, Di Ludlow, Chairman of Chesil Trust said "It is a magnificent amount of money that Palmers Brewery has donated to the Chesil Trust over the last six years and this has enabled a large number of Dorset children to experiencing sailing for the first time.  We are extremely grateful to them for their continued and valued support.  Donations to the charity really do give Dorset's young and disabled people an opportunity that they would not otherwise have".

Cleeves Palmer, Sales and Marketing Director at Palmers said: "Being a Dorset brewery in a coastal town, we are proud to be able to contribute to the Trust which enables young people who live in Dorset to enjoy the delights of sailing.  In the 2012 Olympics the Sailing Academy and our sailors did us proud.  With the help of the Trust we hope more young people will aspire to follow them.
