The Bishop Auckland Food Festival takes place on April 23rd and 24th, with various events, demonstrations, shows, and stalls featuring “the very best food and drink the North East has to offer”.

Clothing to Nepal

Posted on Sun, 24/01/2016 - 12:52 by webmaster
Over the years, Durham CAMRA have supplied supply all volunteers with a shirt for helping out at the festival and in some years we used to have polo shirts for sale to the public. As we never managed to sell all the polo shirts and usually there are a few staff shirts left over at the end of each festival we found ourselves storing more and more surplus clothing. After the Nepal earthquake one of our members who had visited the country had the idea of posting these surplus shirts over to his Nepalese colleague to distribute to some of the needy villagers.
