The power of is strong

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a scheme to set up a new brewery in Lewisham, called Ignition Brewery. My friend Nick O’Shea was trying to win funding to set it up with , creating jobs for adults with learning disabilities and more beer for South East . They just needed votes to get the funding.

Well, thank you for everyone who voted because they got funding! The list of Skills & Opportunity Fund winners is here and Lewisham Mencap is there with six other worthy winners. I am so delighted for them, and not just because of the beer.

Now the first lot of funding has been secured, the work on setting up the brewery and training the staff starts. You can follow Ignition on Twitter here and find their website here. They are looked for an experienced brewer (or brewers) to help them, so if you know your way round a bushel of hops, please get in touch with Nick at hello@ignition.beer.

Cheers to everyone who voted!
