Jennings Brewery boosts YHA’s Breaks for Kids fund

A year-long promotion by Jennings Brewery has raised more than £3,000 for YHA’s Breaks for Kids bursary fund. The donation has helped the youth hostelling charity provide more than 100 activity-based learning and skills development holidays for children from low income households.

Bottles of Cumberland Ale, which were sold at YHA’s Youth Hostels throughout England and Wales, have been carrying a special on-neck flyer. Every single one of these bottles sold has seen 10 pence donated to YHA’s Breaks for Kids fund, raising a grand total of £3096.80.

Gaynor Green, General Manager at Jennings, said: “It’s great that we’ve managed to raise so much for such a worthy cause. We hope the donation will help to enrich the lives of young people who may otherwise not had the chance to travel and experience new things.”

The Breaks for Kids fund helps over 5,500 young people annually and ensures no child is left behind. Delighted to receive the donation Lauren Pethybridge, YHA’s Head of Food and Beverage, said: “Many Youth Hostels within our network are licensed, which gave us the opportunity to partner with Jennings and raise much-needed funds for Breaks for Kids. Every single penny goes directly to helping those young people that need it most and YHA is hugely grateful to Jennings for its support.”

YHA has a vision to reach out and enhance the lives of young people, believing every young person should have the opportunity to travel to a new place, discover new environments away from home and experience learning outside the classroom with their fellow classmates and friends.
