Charity profile: Annie Hoddle from Sebastian’s Action Trust

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 for 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 ones including Thames Valley Air Ambulance, Berkshire Search & Rescue Dogs, Thames Hospice 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 Annie Hoddle from Sebastian’s Action Trust.

Your name and organisation: Annie Hoddle, Philanthropy Officer at Sebastian’s Action Trust.

What do donations from Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival ticket sales mean to your charity? What do they go towards?: The donations will allow SAT to continue supporting critically ill children and their families at a very challenging time.

Where can people go to find out more about your charity?:

Favourite local venue?: Anywhere with a good, varied drinks menu.

Favourite tipple?: Tarbay Botanist gin – a small batch gin from Windsor sounds brilliant- similar to my favourite- another small batch pure gin (from Tooting)- Graveneys gin.

Favourite local festival?: Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival! (honestly, we aren’t making them say this!)
