A KEIGHLEY brewery is the toast of Manorlands.

Timothy Taylor's donated a selection of its award-winning tipples to the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice, to help celebrate Beer Day Britain.

Brews including pale ales and bitters were made available to patients who wished to enjoy a drink with their meals, and to staff at the end of their shifts.

Sarah Bottomley, service director at Manorlands, said: "All of us at Sue Ryder Manorlands hospice are very appreciative of Timothy Taylor’s ongoing support and its kind donation.

"The beverages help patients and families to continue with some normality at a very difficult time of life. Spending valuable time together, enjoying a drink of beer and celebrating Beer Day Britain is just what the doctor ordered for some patients and relatives!"

Scott Cameron, the senior brand manager at Timothy Taylor’s, says: "Manorlands hospice is a charity that we at the brewery – and everyone in the local community – holds dear to our hearts.

"The hospice team’s tireless dedication to caring for people at the end of their lives is just such important work. We wanted to do what we could to help the team and residents enjoy themselves and have a chance to raise a glass to our national drink on Beer Day Britain."
