Beer festival to boost charity

Have your say

Linton pub the Windmill is staging a beer festival next week with funds going to a local charity.

Lee Johnson was a former employee of the Main Street-based pub but died of Sudden Unexpected Death from Epilepsy aged just 24 and afterwards his parents Simon and Vicky set up Lees Smile to raise awareness.

A Windmill spokesman said: “Lee was a past employee of the Windmill, and we’re delighted to be adding our support to this worthwhile cause. It means so much to us all.”

The beer festival will take place on Saturday July 20 from noon onwards and will feature 25 casks of ale from many local breweries, including Collingham ales and WharfeBank.

Entertainment will include musicians, starting with Matt Gouland from Collingham at 2.30pm and finishing with the Blue Kings.

There will also be a Champagne and Pimms tent, Zumba and Cheerobics Classes, barbecue.

For children there will be a bouncy castle, face painting, and a sunflower contest.

Lees family are holding a cake stall at the event to raise as much money as possible.
