Generous beer and cider drinkers helped raise hundreds for the Breast Cancer Campaign at the fifth annual Hook Beer Festival.

The charity received about £600 in donations, which will be topped up by a further donation from the 1st Hook Scout group, festival organiser Neil McLean said.

Nearly 700 people visited the festival, which featured 41 ales and 12 ciders.

Mr McLean said: “The number of people who say, ‘See you next year’, or ‘Make sure you run one next year’, is great.

“It’s a great feeling. We do listen to their comments and we take it all on board.”
