If you’re head is a little fuzzy from enjoying too much of National Cask Ale week, here’s a jolly good idea, check out this Big Brew Up map for the nearest Big Brew Up near you, pop your coat on and get out there and support our Great British Armed Forces with some solidarity tea drinking and chin wagging!
The SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) is an organisation that provides financial, practical and emotional assistance to those people working in the armed forces or those who have been injured in the line of duty as well as their families. The SSAFA is holding it’s 15th Big Brew Up, to raise awareness and funds for the charitable organisation SSAFA Forces Help. Some folks may quaff that it is the government neglecting their responsibility to look after our troops, some folks may sneer that we shouldn’t be positioning ourselves as world police, in fact there is lots of reasons to have a moan, but there is no reason not to support your fellow countrymen and women. We stick together, that’s why we are the United Kingdom, and we’re one of the greatest nations on the planet, that’s why we’re Great Britain.
If you’re keen to hold a Big Brew Up there’s still some time to register your event, or as we mentioned check out the Big Brew Up map for the nearest public event in your area. Join in the conversation on our Facebook page.
