A Warrington law firm strengthened its community roots by sponsoring the cider bar at an annual beer festival in the town.
Watsons Solicitors supported the Wire 2 Wolves Beer Festival, which took place on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July in aid of the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation (WWCF).
WWCF is the charitable arm of Super League side Warrington Wolves and works to create life changing opportunities for local people through sport, education, health, and the arts.
Proceeds from the event, which has become a favourite with supporters since it launched five years ago, went towards extending the club’s heritage wall, which is used to educate school pupils on the eight-time Challenge Cup winner’s history.
The Wire 2 Wolves Beer Festival celebrates the heritage of the club with it taking place underneath the South Stand concourse, which is where Tetley’s had a brewery.
Alex Mitchell, partner and head of the private client department at Watsons Solicitors, said: “The beer festival was a resounding success and the atmosphere across the two days was fantastic.
“Attendees were able to try a range of tipples, including from a gin and prosecco bar, walk the heritage timeline, and enjoy live music.
“We understand that charities rely heavily on donations from businesses. Watsons Solicitors has a long history of supporting community events and was pleased to sponsor the cider bar and continue our relationship with the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation.”
The charitable foundation tweeted its thanks to all sponsors for the important role they played.
Earlier this year, Watsons Solicitors handed over a cheque for £2,000 to the charitable foundation after pledging to write free wills in exchange for donations.
It also sponsored the shorts of Warrington Wolves centre Ryan Atkins for his testimonial match. As part of his celebratory events to mark 10 years at the club, he raised funds for the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation and the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.
