What started off as a brief exchange last year with Phil Hardy ended up becoming the ‘Big Beery Night’ and in the process raised £3128.82 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Some amazing people have donated some amazing lots for us to auction on #BigBeeryNight which takes place on Friday 25 September.
We’ve been blown away with the support for the campaign so far and we’re hoping that you will continue to dig deep by supporting the auction.
Details of the lots, starting bid and when they will be auctioned are below, along with some simple rules for the auction.
Earlier this year I lost my Mum to Cancer. Three years ago it was my mother-in-law. Ten years ago it was my Dad.
Two years ago I was a proud ‘dryathlete’ and raised over £500 for Cancer Research as part of the ‘dryathlon’ which was still a (fairly) unique cause back then.
But now we have campaigns in September, November and at least two in January that I’m aware of. This all dilutes the opportunities and passion that people have for fund raising.
A chance discussion with Phil Hardy on Twitter this morning though and we’ve come up with an idea to change that….
Friday 25 September is the day that Macmillan have claimed for their coffee morning. So we thought why not choose that evening to celebrate all that is great about beer?
It’s a simple concept… Choose a beer, drink the beer, Tweet/Instagram your beer using #BigBeeryNight and then ‘pay’ for your beer by donating the cost of it to Macmillan.
