£2,000 funds subsidsed canal boat trips
The Peter Le Marchant Trust has been running highly subsidised canal boat trips for the elderly, disabled and seriously ill for over 40 years.
Suffragette was brought to the bar back in November in honour of all Suffragettes and in particular, Leicester’s prominent suffragette Alice Hawkins.
It honours the story of Alice Hawkins a famous local suffragette, who lived most of her life in Leicester. Her story is a tremendous account of one woman’s fight for the most basic of human rights – the right to vote. She was imprisoned five times in all her struggle, and the Everards beer celebrates Alice’s strong determined character and fighting spirit.
Commemorating 100 years of the suffragette movement, Everards Suffragette beer is a bold pale ale with a strong hop flavour and aroma.
The limited-edition beer from Everards, was launched at an exclusive event at the Knight and Garter, overlooked by a statue of Alice. The event celebrated the brave story of Alice, and shared plans for many celebrations across Leicestershire including this wonderful beer.
"We are really proud to be at the front of people’s minds for the fight for women. The money raised through people enjoying Suffragette in Everards pubs will help us to continue vital work with local women.”
