Derbyshire’s Angry Bee Micro Pub creates a buzz with £1,700 donation to DLRAA

The Angry Bee Micro Pub in Heanor, Amber Valley district of Derbyshire, have celebrated raising a fabulous £1,701.20 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) – the equivalent of a lifesaving mission.

The donation was raised over the last two years from regular collections, raffles and the sale of preserves made by one of the regulars. The Belper & Matlock District Volunteers Group have been a great support and the team at the Micro Pub have set themselves a new mission for 2020 – to reach £3,000!

Richard Fletcher, Volunteer Derbyshire Community Representative for DLRAA said: “I was delighted to be part of this fantastic achievement, their passion and support for our service is truly fantastic”.

Owner of the Angry Bee Micro Pub, Mick Ward added:

“It’s a service you never know when you need it and it’s landed in Heanor close to the pub several times over the past 12 months – It’s in everyone’s thoughts.

“The support and encouragement from Richard has really driven us to achieve our target. I would like to thank all the team and customers for their generosity and the amazing support they have given”.

This is one of Heanor’s Secret Gems, so if you are in the area and want to try some palatable beers with a buzz while helping our lifesaving service – get yourself to the Angry Bee!
