Doncaster CAMRA
Introduction

Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 145,000 ordinary drinkers, run by an unpaid, elected National Executive and backed by a small core of professional executives. It speaks for drinkers everywhere in fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, and in attempting to improve quality and to ensure pub standards are raised.

Our branch covers  all of the Doncaster Metropolitan Borough as well as the Isle of Axholme in Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire as far as Goole and a small area of North Yorkshire.
