Hospice Patients Say “Cheers” to Big-Hearted Local Brewery

A Keighley brewery has once again donated a selection of their award-winning tipples for patients at Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice as part of this year’s Beer Day Britain initiative.

Family-owned brewery, Timothy Taylor’s, will be inviting patients at the Oxenhope-based hospice to raise a glass of their locally brewed beverages as part of the UK’s annual national beer day this Saturday 15 June.

Sue Ryder Nurses and hospice staff aim to create a ‘home away from home’ environment for patients receiving palliative care, to bring them comfort and a sense of normality during a difficult time.

The brews including pale ales to bold bitters donated by Timothy Taylor’s will be made available to patients who would like to enjoy a drink with their lunch or evening meals. Hospice staff will also be invited to raise a glass at home at the end of their shift so that they too can join in with the celebration of Britain’s national drink.

Sarah Bottomley, Service Director at Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, said: "All of us at Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice are very appreciative of Timothy Taylor’s ongoing support and their kind donation.

"It helps patients and families to continue with some normality at this very difficult time of life. Spending valuable time together, enjoying a drink of beer, celebrating 'Beer Day Britain' is just what the doctor ordered for some patients and relatives."

Scott Cameron, Senior Brand Manager at Timothy Taylor’s, said: "Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice is a charity that we at Timothy Taylor’s, and everyone in the local community, holds dear to their hearts.

"The team’s tireless dedication to caring for people at the end of their life is just such important work. We wanted to do what we could to help the team and residents enjoy themselves and have a chance to raise a glass to our national drink on Beer Day Britain."
