The Parish Church of St. Guthlac, located in Market Deeping, is a (mostly) 15th-century landmark in the small Lincolnshire, England, town, pop. 6,200. Currently, the church is undergoing some renovations and additions, thanks to successful fund-raising efforts. But one contributor in particular is of note: the Hobshackle Brewery, which has created a beer especially for the church.
A donation of 25p from the sale of each bottle of the beer, aptly named Restoration, has been donated to the church, totalling £210.
The Rev Philip Brent said: “We have a close relationship with the brewery, which I blessed when it initially opened.
“We are delighted with the donation.
“We have recently had new wiring and lighting done in the church and are now working on new toilets with disabled access, a meeting room and a kitchen.
“We have been fundraising for a while for this and it’s great to have support.”
