Today we are proud to be announced as the official beer partner for NGO Street Child’s exciting new running event, The Craft Half. The Craft Half will take place on the 4th February 2018 and is a trail half marathon through Wimbledon Common. Making this a particularly unique event, runners will be rewarded with half pints (well, 330mL cans) of Hop Stuff at fueling stations every two miles.
Participants can celebrate crossing the finish line with the ultimate 'Half-ter' Party. Street Child will host a toasty event village complete with live music, sizzling Street Food and, of course, more Hop Stuff beer! Runners can also opt for the less intense 10K option - all the benefits of the Craft Half but just one lap of the common.
Lucy James, Challenge co-ordinator for Street Child says, “We’re really pleased to have Hop Stuff Brewery on board as the official beer partner of the Street Child Craft Half as we know that they are as excited as we are to spread the word that running plus beer can make a huge impact on our ability to provide education to children in West Africa.”
As for us, Hop Stuff Brewery is thrilled to be the official beer partner of the Street Child Craft Half. Craft beer should be for everyone, so who better than these legends running 13.1 miles to make a difference to some of the world’s most vulnerable children. It's a good cause and a great event.
Runners are asked to fund raise a minimum of £150 which will support the charity’s projects in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria helping some of the most vulnerable children to go to school and learn. All .money raised will be matched pound for pound by the UK Government through to UK Aid Match.
Street Child believes that every child deserves the right to safety and to be empowered through education. Working in some of the poorest areas in the world, Street Child strives to ensure that every child has the chance to go to school and learn. We get a lot of sponsorship requests, but this one struck a chord.
