A CREATIVE agency has drawn up some beery posters to help North Bar’s campaign to raise money for St Gemma’s Hospice.

Leeds based BML Creative has come up with some eye-catching prints for the bar company’s 20th anniversary celebrations, which aims to raise £20,000 for the hospice in Moortown.

Posters include beer bottles smoking like factory chimneys and slogans like ‘beer served here’.

The fundraising campaign in known as #NB20. Staff and customers from all seven North Bar venues are being encouraged to get involved with various fundraising activities over the next 12 months, like the NB20 Charity Tap. The initiative is being supported by some of the area’s leading breweries who are donating free kegs of beer to it.

BML director Natalie Holloway said: “When North Bar told us out about their #NB20 campaign, we were in the process of choosing a new local charity to support. It seemed a perfect opportunity to combine forces and use our charity prints to support St Gemma’s – an organisation that’s close to all our hearts. We thought it would be nice to let the North Bar team choose the theme for our designers to work on. Everyone was really excited when North Bar came back and decided the new theme was going to be ‘Beer’.”

North Bar’s marketing and events Fran Rackham co-ordinator added: “We were really excited to see what the BML team would come up with when they told us about the challenge, but the quality of the designs has totally blown us away! North Bar has a long history of great local art on the walls as well as great beer, so we can’t wait to get the prints up in some of our venues.”
