Dark Star Brewing Co. seek worthy causes for Foundation

By James | 21/11/17

We launched our Foundation back in 2012 to assist charities, fund community projects and support fundraising in pubs and funding applications for 2018 are open now.

The Dark Star Foundation has supported charities such as The Dame Vera Lynn Trust, Team Margot, Age UK and St Catherine’s Hospice.

Dark Star MD, James Cuthbertson, commented: “As well as supporting charities and helping community projects, we are looking to help pubs in their fundraising efforts. For example, if a pub needs to buy or hire a marquee so they can run outside charity functions, then we want to hear from them. I guess the pub element of our Foundation is to help pubs raise more money and further integrate them into their communities.”

James added: “UK pubs raise over £100M for charity every year and our Foundation is designed to help them in that cause.”

We raise funds for our Foundation through brewery tours, our annual beer and music event Hopfest and collection pots in pubs.

Funding applications are open now and will close on January 26th 2018 with funds being distributed in February 2018.

Details of how to apply for funding can be found here.
