Epping drinkers could help landmine charity with new beer
A landmine charity is set to benefit from the sale of a new beer soon to be available in pubs and shops.
McMullen & Sons Limited, of Hertfordshire, are brewing a seasonal beer in aid of mine clearance and bomb disposal charity The HALO Trust.
The charity brew will be available in McMullen pubs in Epping, Loughton, Ongar and Theydon Bois, from mid-September and through October.
Chris Evans, the Head Brewer at McMullens, said: “We take for granted that we can source our water and barley without risk to life and limb.”
The beverage will be promoted in pubs by its pump clip which depicts a PROM bounding fragmentation mine which are designed to bounce to chest height before exploding.
The HALO Trust is the largest and oldest humanitarian landmine clearance organisation and has destroyed 1.4m landmines and 200,000 cluster bombs since March 1998.
Guy Willoughby, CEO of The HALO Trust, said: “McMullens' contribution will help us to recruit and train more deminers so that we can get more landmines out of the ground more quickly."
A McMullens spokesman said: “McMullens are proud to be supporting the HALO Trust. It is one of the UK’s unsung success stories.”
Participating pubs include Traveller's Friend, Epping; Owl, High Beach; The Hollybush, Loughton; The Sun Inn, Nazeing; Queen Victoria and Sixteen String Jack, Theydon Bois; The Angel, The Crown, Queen's Head, The Volunteer, Welsh Harp and The Wheatsheaf, Waltham Abbey.
