Wolf Brewery donation
Glasses raised raise thousands for nurses
Cavell Nurses’ Trust has received more than £2,000 from the sale of over 45,000 pints of Edith Cavell Ale. The ale is produced by the Wolf Brewery based in Norfolk where the heroic WW1 nurse grew up.
Edith Cavell worked as a British nurse during the First World War and she saved the lives of over 200 Allied soldiers by helping them escape from German-occupied Belgium. For this act she was executed by a firing squad in 1915 and a Fund for Nurses was set up in her honour.
Cavell Nurses’ Trust, as it’s now called, gives welfare support to nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants experiencing financial or personal hardship, often because of illness, domestic abuse, disability, working poverty and older age.
With 5p from the sale of each of the 45,000 pints and bottles of Edith Cavell Ale sold during 2015, the Trust has received a total of £2,267 to help support nurses who are in crisis.
On accepting the donation from the Wolf Brewery, Steve Moralee, Head of Trusts and Major Gifts at Cavell Nurses’ Trust commented “We are extremely grateful to the Wolf Brewery for their donation and continuing support. Raising a glass of Edith Cavell Ale is a fantastic way to celebrate the life of this heroic nurse and support nurses who are facing hardship today.”
