Brewery brings in £500 for Wheelpower

A Buckinghamshire brewery has helped fund the work of Wheelpower.

Chiltern Wheeling was available throughout the 2019 Rugby World Cup and The Chiltern Brewery pledged to donate 5p from every pint sold to WheelPower, head-quarted at Stoke Mandeville Stadium.

Tom Jenkinson, Head Brewer at The Chiltern Brewery, said:

"Being only a few miles away we have always been great admirers of the work WheelPower do, so to be able to support them in their fundraising efforts has been a real privilege.

"We have been fortunate to have been invited to some of the events that WheelPower put on for their service users and have seen the difference first-hand that they make to the lives of those affected by spinal injuries."

Managing Director George Jenkinson added:

"It was great to see so many people supporting WheelPower through the strong sales of Chiltern Wheeling, many customers at The King's Head (Aylesbury) told us how much they loved that the beer helped to raise funds, the fact it also tasted great was simply an added bonus!"

Sales & Marketing Manager James Bradshaw said:

"It's been an honour to help raise awareness of the work that WheelPower do and at the same time raise funds for their vital work.

"2020 is our 40th Anniversary of brewing at The Chiltern Brewery, so I'm sure there will be lots of opportunities to strengthen our relationship with WheelPower next year too." 

CEO of WheelPower, Martin McElhatton:

"Everyone at WheelPower is hugely grateful to Chiltern Brewery for their tremendous support.  WheelPower provide newly paralysed men and women with access to sport and physical activity which boosts their rehabilitation and gives them a positive outlook on life after injury.  

"Thanks to everyone who bought a pint of Chiltern Wheeling, a great beer helping us transform the lives of disabled people."
