Calling All Cider Makers!
Here at the Yew Tree we like to support local charities and are combining a cider competition with supporting HOPE.
HOPE support young people across the UK when a close family member is diagnosed with a life threatening illness – from the moment of diagnosis for however long they are needed. There’s some great information HERE
Our competition has been inspired by the Big Apple Cider Trials and will have peer-judging and of course complete transparency. Combined with a pub cider festival, entrants will go on sale with profits supporting our 2017 charity of the year – HOPE.
