The best new brewery in South East London? Could be
“More beer and jobs!” As electioneering slogans go, it’s a pretty good one. And if you vote for Ignition Brewery to receive funding from the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Skills & Opportunities Fund, you will be voting for more beer and jobs in Lewisham.
Declared interest: my friend Nick has volunteered with Lewisham Mencap since I’ve known him and he is currently involved in setting up Ignition Brewery, a micro-brewery that will provide supported jobs and training for people with learning disabilities. Their aim is create five full time jobs, a community space and lots of delicious beer for us to buy.
They are in the running to receive funding from the RBS Fund but they needs votes to get it. If you are remotely keen on beer, jobs or clicking on links, please vote for Ignition Brewery (Lewisham Mencap is the name on the list to look out for). You can vote here (scroll down to the bottom of the page) and if you’d like to read a little bit about Ignition Brewery, click here. The Evening Standard have also run a piece on the brewery here.
It will take you less than 10 seconds to vote for Lewisham Mencap and all the support you can provide will be very much appreciated. And I repeat: More beer and jobs! How can you not vote for that?
