Roll Out The Barrels with Piccadilly

Lancaster Brewery is once again calling for locals to take up the challenge of its annual Roll Out The Barrel assault course event, at 12pm on 29 October at Lancaster Brewery HQ. Now in its fifth year, the event promises to be the ultimate ale assault course, with all funds raised going to Piccadilly, the Lancaster charity supporting adults and young people with additional needs.

The triumphant team will receive £100 and a silver barrel trophy filled with their beer of choice. All entrants get a t-shirt for their efforts, vouchers for two pints of beer and delicious food from Kelly’s Kitchen for the post-race celebrations*.

Matt Jackson, managing director at Lancaster Brewery is delighted to be hosting the event again: “Roll Out the Barrel is my favourite event of the year, it brings together fun, food, beers and a little bit of healthy competition - all in a fantastic cause! We are calling on everyone in Lancaster to consider getting involved - you just need a team of four and you are in. Why not challenge your office to enter? And students, come and show us what you are made of! Plenty of beer to enjoy after the race so you should all feel at home!”

Last year’s winning team came from FGH Security, and the company is sponsoring this year’s event. Peter Harrison, managing director at FGH commented: “We love getting involved in Roll Out the Barrel. The challenge is 10% strength, 20% endurance, 30% mental and 40% logical problem-solving skills, so entering a diverse team is really important. It is literally Lancaster’s answer to the Crystal Maze! We see it as a low-cost team building exercise, the with added benefit of raising money for a great local cause. Our families love to come along - with fantastic beers, a free bouncy castle, brewery
tours and a barbeque available, there is something for everyone.

“I hope to see lots more local organisations signing up, taking part and getting involved in this fantastic community fundraising event on an annual basis. It is really a barrel of laughs!”

Stephen Neaves at Piccadilly adds: “Local support with fundraising is vital in order for us to continue to support the community as we do. We believe that our services play a vital role in Lancaster - but we can’t do it without this sort of help. Huge thanks to everyone involved - from Lancaster Brewery and FGH Security to all those taking part. And GOOD LUCK on the day!”
