Elgood & Sons donated £1,241 to Norfolk Hospice Tapping House at their Christmas event thanks to fundraising events held throughout the year.

Rebekah Mills, of the Norfolk Hospice, said: “All the funds raised go directly to providing vital care to people with life-limiting illnesses in the local community.”

The Wisbech brewers held a raffle which raised £160. Prizes included a Christmas cake and Christmas pudding, made and donated by Sheila Wright of Sutton St James.

There was also a selection of items donated by the brewery and stallholders at the craft fair.

Craft fairs held in May and September in the Brewery Gardens raised £340 for Tapping House, while a Father’s Day raffle at a Wisbech Jazz Club event raised £293.

Further donations were given by Skylark Studios from Tydd, visiting bell ringers, garden visitors and brewery staff.
