Skipton Restaurant Supports Leeds Based Brain Tumour Research And Support
In support of local ‘auld fella’ David Goldie, who owned its 4-6 Skipton High Street premises for 35 years, Alexander’s Bar & Kitchen has pledged to donate 10% of the sales of its beer named in honour of the former owner to the Rotary Club’s Yorkshire Boundary Charity Bike Ride cause. Additionally, anyone showing confirmation that they’ve sponsored the ride will receive a complimentary schooner of ‘Goldie’s’.

The 425 mile bike which follows the edge of the entire county from Sheffield in the south to Redcar and Guisborough in the north, is being undertaken by two long standing members of Skipton Rotary Club, 73 year old David and Kevin Wharton (65) along with friends, Ray Cryer (71) and Rich Newall (55), in a bid to raise funds for Leeds based Brain Tumour Research and Support across Yorkshire (BTRS), in memory of Skipton Rotary president, John Wright’s daughter Annette, who tragically died of a brain tumour aged just 11 years.

With a combined age of 260 the ‘auld fellas’ hope to complete the challenge in six days, starting on July 14th and finishing Friday July 19, with the money raised going to support vital research being carried out to find a cure for brain tumours, improve clinical outcomes and give support to sufferers and their families.

Owner of Alexander’s and Peel Entertainment, Susannah Daley said: “This is an incredibly worthy cause which is also very close to our own hearts, having had two members of our Peel Entertainment team die from a brain tumour at a very young age. We thought it would be a fitting gesture to raise money through sales of our Goldie’s beer, a donation which will continue until the ride is completed.

“In addition we would like to acknowledge people’s generosity in sponsoring David and the team by offering a complimentary schooner of Goldie’s or glass of prosecco or ‘Tom and the Pelaton’, our brand new Ventoux Rouge. To receive this customers just need to show their Just Giving page to one of our team.”

Everyone who sponsors the Four Auld Fellas are also invited to join them at Alexander’s on July 19th from 5pm for a ‘Welcome Back’ celebration, the perfect opportunity for sponsors to collect their complimentary drink.

The group are aiming to raise a life changing £5000 for BTRS, to sponsor please visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/maureen-wharton.
