Everards of Leicestershire has helped raise £1,800 to commemorate Myrtle the Parachick.
Everards partnered with the Parachute Regimental Association ‘Friends of the Tenth’ to brew a limited-edition beer named Myrtle which has raised an impressive amount of money.
Friends of the Tenth are raising money to erect a memorial in Somerby to remember the brave young men of the 10th Battalion. 5p from every pint sold has been donated to the Friends of the Tenth and Everards has donated alongside this fundraising to thank the friends for the collaboration.
Friends of the Tenth Chairman Alec Wilson expressed his delight and gratitude at the sum which has been raised from sales of Myrtle “This significant sum reflects the incredibly enthusiastic way Everards have pledged their support to the fundraising,” he said.
“The choice of Myrtle as the theme was certainly an inspired one and has created an incredible amount of interest.
“We would like to express our sincere thanks to Everards for their support and look forward to working with them for Myrtle’s return next year.”
Myrtle is a red ale, brewed with Pilot and Flyer hops. Aromas of stoned fruit, treacle toffee and caramel can be found with a lemon, spicy, marmalade on the finish. This beer was very popular, and the story shared far and wide.
