Down a pint for good cause in Finsbury
A Finsbury pub has launched a charity pint to help people affected by tinnitus and hearing loss.
The Angel, in City Road, will donate 10p from every pint of Winged Angel they sell towards Action for Hearing Loss, which offers support to communication for people with hearing difficulties.
It is estimated there are more than 10 million people in the UK with some form of hearing loss, about one in six of the total population.
And now they will be helped through the sale of Winged Angel, which is a malty, fruity bitter with a four per cent alcohol content.
Brendan Cluskey, landlord of the pub, said: “It’s a nice pint – I have a little tipple of it myself now and again. It’s four per cent, so its strong enough.

“Every 1,000 pints sold means �100 for the charity, so I encourage everyone to come along and play their part. We’re always looking to do our bit for good causes, but this is bound to become one of our favourite ways.”
Cara Fullelove, a campaigner for Action for Hearing Loss, said: “Our head office is nearby and this is our local. We often drink in here, so it’s nice of Brendan to help out.
