Palmers Brewery donate again to the Chesil Trust

The Chesil Trust receives another generous donation from Palmers Brewery through sales of Dorset Gold

The Chesil Trust, in place to enable young or disabled people in Dorset to experience and enjoy the thrills of sailing, received a cheque for £6962 from the Brewery.

Every year since 2007, 5p from every pint of draft Palmers’ Dorset Gold sold in Dorset and every bottle sold in the UK, has been donated to the Trust. This latest donation brings the total donated by Palmers Brewery to an outstanding £30,381.92.

The cheque was presented by Cleeves Palmer, Sales and Marketing Director at Palmers Brewery to the HM Lord Lieutenant of Dorset – Mrs Valerie Pitt-Rivers, Di Ludlow (Chairman of Chesil Trust), and John Tweed (former Chief Executive of the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA)).

On receiving the cheque, Di Ludlow 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 experience 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 added: “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.“

The Trust exists to enable young or disabled people to experience and enjoy the thrills of sailing. It does this by assisting in the provision of facilities for training in sailing and seamanship and other activities. The area of benefit of the Trust is the whole of the County of Dorset. To date the Trust has enabled 11,000+ children to go sailing for the first time and has also assisted talented young sailors from Dorset.
