Big C Little c is a new charity that was formed this year to benefit vulnerable local children and people affected by cancer. It is to be a joint beneficiary of money raised at the South Notts Beer Festival which, this year, is being sponsored by Sills & Betteridge Solicitors.
Now in its 8th year, the South Notts Beer Festival is organised by Nottingham Moderns Rugby Club to raise money for its juniors section. The three-day festival takes place from Friday 3 May Sunday to 5 May in the clubhouse at Moderns Rugby Club in Wilford Village. Opening hours are 12noon until 11pm on Friday and Saturday and 12noon until 5pm on Sunday.
Over the years, the beer festival has developed into quite a sizable event, featuring approximately 50 beers and ciders, plus a brand new little gin bar, which proved to be very popular last year.
Alongside the South Notts Real Ale Festival, Nottingham Moderns RFC will also host their annual President’s Day celebrations on the afternoon of Saturday 4 May. This event marks the end of the rugby season with a combination of Junior and Senior rugby and a number of attractions for friends and families at the club.
Attractions include bouncy castles and a selection of stalls with classic games, such as Soak the Coach, Treasure Hunt and Lucky Dip. Over 400 visitors are expected to attend to see Nottingham Moderns RFC to play matches against rival teams that include Old Northamptonians RFC, Shepshed RFC and Newark RFC.
Sills & Betteridge is one of the largest independently owned law firms in the East Midlands. The firm has offices in Nottingham and Northampton, as well as nine other locations across Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire. Commenting on the sponsorship, Jenny Lowe, Marketing Manager said, “This event enables us to support local charities and encourage sport and community involvement. We are delighted to add our brand as main sponsor and hope that we can raise as much money as possible for Big C Little c.”
Festival organiser, Clare Grantham added, “We are delighted to have secured support from Sills and Betteridge as our main event sponsor. We also have a number of local businesses who are paying £50 each to have their brand displayed on the beer barrel labels and are confident that we can reach the fundraising target we have set for this event.”
Big C Little c is a registered charity founded in January 2019 by Nottingham entrepreneur Andrew Springhall, who for many years has been an NSPCC counsellor, and PKF Cooper Parry Partner, Colin Shaw who lost his wife to cancer. Their aim is to encourage as many businesses as possible to hold events in aid of the new charity so that all money raised can be used to support initiatives in Nottingham.
Other sponsors include Norsk Global, Two Guys Research, and Simple Marketing Consultancy.
