Help protect the South West coast with an ale!
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
In a recent report commissioned by the National Trust, it was found that the South West is very much the nation's favourite coastal destination. 70 per cent of people from England, Wales and Northern Ireland stated that they would like to visit Cornwall. And 79 per cent of those from the South West agreed that seeing the coast every day would make them happy.
It was found that it costs the National Trust £3,000 a year to look after just one mile of coast, and the Trust cares for over 300 miles of coast in the South West alone. In order for the coast to be enjoyed by everyone, the charity relies on donations, and working with partnerships.
One such partnership is with St Austell Brewery, who have just released a celebratory pale ale to coincide with the National Trust's 50th anniversary of their Neptune Coastline Campaign.
The Gribbin is a 4.3% English pale ale, and is named after the headland of the same name just a short distance from our Fowey hotels. It is an extremely popular site with visitors, who can enjoy beautiful views of the Cornish coast.
23,000 pints worth of this fine ale have been brewed, with 20 pence from every bottle or pint sold heading straight into the Coastline campaign. These donations will result in around £5,000 being raised through their partnership.
Now you can help to protect the Cornish coastline by having a pint! The ale can be purchased from one of the over 200 National Trust outlets in the South West, so why not treat yourself on your next stay at the Cormorant Hotel?
