Charity focus: Jonjo Warrick of Reading Refugee Support Group

As you’ll be aware by now, Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival is supporting a number of charities this year following our link up with ticketing website TicketPass.

What this means, is that every ticket sold for the 2022 Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival, TicketPass donate 50% of their admin fee to a charity you can choose from our list. We’ve included a lot of local one’s including Thames Valley Air Ambulance, Berkshire Search & Rescue Dogs, Sebastian’s Action Trust and more.

As part of this link up, we thought we’d find out a little more about the charities, what the money you raise means to them and of course, their favourite tipple. This time we speak to Jonjo Warrick from Reading Refugee Support Group.

Your name and organisation:
