Spitfire backs national heroes with charity pack profits
Published:  11 January, 2008

Kent brewer Shepherd Neame has launched a limited-edition charity version of its Spitfire ale.

All brewing profits from the 24x25cl packs sold in Majestic, Booths, Nisa Today's and Makro will be donated to the national armed forces charity, Help for Heroes.

Help for Heroes is a new national charity which supports members of the armed forces who return wounded from tours of duty. Famous supporters include Princes William and Harry, TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson and musician James Blunt.

One of its aims is to raise cash to build a

gym and swimming pool at the Defence Medical Services Rehabilitation Centre

in Headley Court , Epsom, Surrey.

Sheps chief executive Jonathan Neame said: "Spitfire Ale has a proud record of supporting service charities and we are delighted to offer Help for Heroes our support."
