Speaking Up at the 36th Cambridge Beer Festival!

Speaking Up was extremely excited to have our Cambridge Next Steps project as the Official Charity Project of the 36th Cambridge Beer Festival! We had a fantastic week there - with a stall, tombola, face painting and a Human Buzzwire - a giant version of normal buzzwires, where the hoop you have to move down the wire is mounted to a helmet, instead of on a hand held pole! Click here to see the Buzzwire in action!

It was great fun, and we raised a total of £3,309 for Next Steps! Thank you so much to everybody who made it possible - the local businesses who kindly donated prizes for the tombola, the wonderful Beer Festival organisers and stewards who supported us for the whole week, and the many staff who volunteered their time and energy!
