Doncaster and District CAMRA held our Annual General Meeting at the Salutation on Friday 6 November. The meeting was opened by branch chairman Bob Kiddle at 7:30 and featured reports from Bob and various committee members who covered a range of subjects including branch finances, the Donny Drinker magazine and our current membership figures . The well attended meeting was also treated to some informative reports on local breweries from their respective Brewery Liaison Officers.
All the committee were re-elected to their respective positions with Trevor Jones now being officially designated as branch co-ordinator for NBSS (CAMRA’s National Beer Scoring System ). Lynn Atack and Sue O’Brien were elected a branch auditors.
Members were informed that we raised more than £2,100 for Firefly, our adopted charity for 2015. Three charities were nominated for adoption by the branch for 2016. After presentations by members proposing each charity, a vote was taken and Liver Cancer, a subsidiary of Cancer UK , was selected as our official charity for next year.
