Phil Thompson, owner of The Bald Buzzard, on Hockliffe Street, said: "We ran the competition as part of Cask Ale Week last month, we had a mystery beer and our customers had to guess what the beer was, all proceeds were donated to Wheel Power.

"Five people guessed it right so we put their names in a hat and pulled out a winner, they won free ten pints from the pub.

"We raised £150 for Wheel Power, I can’t think of a more worthy local charity.
