The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Tattenhall Beer Festival Committee: August 2016
Our Charity Beer Festival is drawing near. We include two stories relating to each of our designated charities. Last year we were able to donate £1250 to each charity that we supported, so this really is one of Tattenhall's major fundraising events of the year.
Our second piece relates to The Children's Society; one of our two designated charities this autumn.
The Children's Society helps change children's stories, working towards a country where all children are free from disadvantage.
They've been trusted for over a century to drive change locally and nationally and provide support where it's needed most. They base this vital work on the experiences of every child they help and the solid evidence they gather.
Every year, they work directly with more and more of the most disadvantaged children. They do this through their extensive network of frontline services, supported by an army of volunteers. Together, they tackle child poverty and neglect head on, from helping families trapped in debt, child runaways and young carers, to stopping child sexual exploitation.
They are brave in their actions: uncovering desperate situations, exposing injustice and addressing hard truths to improve children's lives. Through their ambitious campaigns and determination to put children at the centre, they challenge misconceptions, change attitudes and influence government policy.
Since the day they were founded by Sunday school teacher Edward Rudolf, they've been at the forefront of pioneering change for children. They opened the UK's first residential children's care home and first safe house for runaways. They were instrumental in securing free school meals for all infant school children living in poverty.
Today, as always, they are ambitious for all children. They are determined, through their campaigning, commitment and care, to give every child the greatest possible chance in life.
The Children's Society is a much needed charity that has the welfare of all children, whether locally or nationally, at the heart of all its vital work. This is why the Tattenhall Beer Festival Committee has decided to support this worthy charity.
By sponsoring and/or attending this year's very popular Tattenhall Charity Beer Festival (14th and 15th October), you will help to enable The Children's Society carry on its much needed service to children.

The last home fixture of this somewhat shortened season saw Tattenhall host one of their rivals from last year's campaign, Northwich CC. With the prospect of 'End of Seasons Fines' after the match, combined with the wonderful late summer weather, there was plenty of energy pre- match, particularly when our captain decided we would be drawing straws to decide the batting line up...
