A team from Analox volunteered their time to help set up for the Cornshed Charity Beer Festival.
The festival is being held on Saturday 3 September, 3pm until midnight and is taking place at Sexhow Park Farm, near Hutton Rudby, which is the location of the previous Cornshed Festival in June, that Analox helped out at beforehand.
The event will feature a lineup of bands including Squealer, James Gray Robson & The Lovely Burn and Last Anthem. There will be over 30 real ales available to try plus ciders, perry and wine.
To help set up for the event, Analox staff moved chairs and tables, put up fencing, and set up the bar area and stalls.
While setting up the fencing in the morning Paul Oliver, Document Manager, discovered a small frog among the grass who was keeping a close eye on the Analox team to make sure they were working hard.
Paul said: “The charity day was good. I like things that are hands on, and because it was sunny it made the day even better. This is the first charity day I have taken part in as I’m usually busy with work, but I’m glad I got to do this.”
Jack Price, Electronics Technician, added: “It was tiring but I didn’t mind as I liked the type of work they were giving us, and it was a nice day to be out of the office. I’d never done a charity day before and after experiencing one I really enjoyed it.”
Tickets are still available for the Cornshed Charity Beer Festival and cost £12.50.
Tickets can be bought from www.greatnorthairambulance.co.uk and all the money raised at the event will go to the Great North Air Ambulance.
