The Beer and Cider festival has raised thousands of pounds for local charities and people in need within the local Shirley area, all profits from the festival are fed into the Shirley Round Table charitable trust, and it’s sister group, Shirley Ladies Circle (see links on the menu).

Other charity fundraisers we conduct include the Shirley Donkey Derby and the December Santa’s Sleigh around Shirley.
