A new beer has been launched in Bolton thanks to a collaboration between accoutants and a local brewery.

The beer, created by accountancy firm Cowgills and Nelson Square based Northern Monkey, will be dubbed A Night in the Cells, with money raised from sales going to support Bolton Lads and Girls Club.

This will be the latest move that Cowgills has made in support of the club, following on from a partnership of many years.

Cowgills partner Stuart Stead said: “Northern Monkey is located right on ours and BLGC’s doorstep. We wanted to do something a little different to raise much needed cash for the club whilst supporting a growing local business.

“As accountants we spend a long time looking at cells on spreadsheets so thought the name A Night In The Cells was a good fit with our business.

“Partnering with Northern Monkey to create our very own limited edition craft beer has been really good fun, but we hope that it will really help to raise vital funds for BLGC and the young people that they support throughout the town.”

The special brew will be sold at Northern Monkey, with staff exited about getting it on tap.

Liam Convey who owns Northern Monkey and creates its beer from its brewery on Chorley Street in the town centre added: “When Cowgills approached us we were very happy to get involved, supporting BLGC whilst working with a highly established Bolton business like Cowgills. 

“With the creation of this special edition beer, we will hopefully be able to both raise a glass and some money too.”

Bolton Lads and Girls Club have added how grateful they are for these efforts.

Fundraising and communications manager Kelly McFadden said: “We want to thank Cowgills and Northern Monkey for developing A Night in the Cells to raise funds for our charity.

“Cowgills is a long-term, proud patron of the Club and we are inspired by their desire to help us continue to provide critical services for Bolton’s children and young people.

“We can’t wait to try the new brew and share the news with our other fantastic supporters.”
