UK consumers of the African beer Tusker have raised more than £10,000 for Royally patronised charity Tusk Trust

EAST Africa’s number one lager, Tusker, has raised over £10,000 for the TUSK Trust though UK beer sales.

5p from every sale of Tusker premium lager sold in the UK went to the wildlife charity, which promotes education throughout Africa, helping communities develop in a way that does no harm to the natural habitat.

The cheque was presented at the Glass House restaurant in Worcester by actor John Challis, a long time supporter of the charity, who said:“It is always a pleasure to work with Tusk Trust and it is great to see Tusker, a genuine African lager, raising so much money for the charity in the UK.

People have said I have an almost ecclesiastical zeal for the work Tusk Trust do, but that is because it is so important. This was one of the first charities to get local people involved in the preservation of Africa’s incredible wild life. I am hoping one day to make a series of documentaries on this work.”

Tusker is an African lager which has won numerous gold’s at the highly respected “Monde Selection” international beer awards. By drinking Tusker UK consumers have allowed the brand to make a contribution to charity while enjoying East Africa’s favourite lager. Tusker is brewed using the highest quality equatorial malted barley grown at the base of Mt. Kenya and in the Kenyan Rift Valley. It is a crisp and clean tasting lager making it a great thirst quencher as well as the ideal accompaniment to food.
