Cheers, dears for myeloma charity

Graham Willgoss

A fundraising beer for the International Myeloma Foundation has gone on sale.

IMF Charity Beer was sold at the Paisley Real Ale Festival by the Campaign for Real Ale in memory of fundraiser and Camra member John Drew, who died in October 2004 after suffering from blood cancer for two years.

Fyne Ales brewery at Loch Fyne in Argyll brewed and donated the beer to the Renfrewshire branch of Camra to sell at the festival for £2.20 a pint.

"It is a real honour to have a beer brewed for us," said Eric Low, fundraising manager at the IMF.

"It is an amazing way to support the charity and, because it is such a close fit with one of John's hobbies, it is even more special."
