Pub's Afghan brew will help child refugees
AN award-winning town centre micro pub is raising charity cash by raising pints.
The Queen’s Head in Chepstow’s Moor Street is donating £1 from every pint sold of Afghan Pale Ale to help child refugees and those fleeing the Afghanistan crisis.
Pub landlord Glen Ellis said: "Like most people, I’ve been thinking a lot about the people of Afghanistan and the worsening situation in their country.
"In times of war and conflict, children suffer more than anyone.
"Save the Children have been helping child refugees and victims of conflict in Afghanistan, so I’ll be donating £1 from each pint of Afghan Pale Ale sold over the next month.
"People are also welcome to make any extra donations if they wish.
"Grey Trees Brewery have heard about our fundraiser and have pledged a cask of Afghan to the pub in order to raise even more money! Thank you guys!"
He added: "The idea came to me as I was watching thousands of desperate Afghans trying to flee Afghanistan on the news.
"I remembered that I had some Afghan Pale Ale in the cellar, and I just wanted to do something to help, even if it’s only a small gesture.
"We are hoping to raise more than £500.’’
