A PUB landlord is calling on people to help her in a nationwide campaign, which will see a pint of pale ale travel across England to mark Freedom Day.

Rachael Jennings from the Norman Conquest in Middlesbrough is one of seven pub landlords across the country who have come together to undertake a national relay, transporting one pint of Ice Breaker Pale Ale straight from the brewery all the way north to Newcastle-upon-Tyne in time to raise a toast on Freedom Day – and all in aid of Macmillan.

The pint will travel a total of 355 miles from Bury St Edmunds to arrive in Gateshead on July 19.

Mrs Jennings must transport the pint from the Norman Conquest in Middlesbrough to the Waggon Team in Gateshead- a total of 41 miles - where she will hand the beer over to a colleague to undertake the next leg of the journey.

The 41 miles will be done as the pint rides on the back of a skateboard. 

In order to make the event as fun as possible, the landlords are competing to see who can help to transport it in the most creative way.

However, a smooth journey will be key, as Greene King has pledged to donate £1 to Macmillan for every millilitre of ale that arrives at the next pub. With 568 milliliters in a pint, there’s a potential donation of over £4,500 for the complete journey.

Mrs Jennings said: “Obviously 41 miles is quite a distance to transport a pint on a skateboard which is why I’m calling on the support of my regulars and the locals of Middlesbrough to encourage me as I set off on my journey, and to help me pass the pint of Greene King Ice Breaker to the next location. If you regularly travel in the direction of Gateshead and are happy to pack a pint in your rucksack or on your passenger seat, we would really like your help!”

“I’m excited to undertake the relay, but am also looking forward to returning back to the Norman Conquest in Middlesbrough in time to mark Freedom Day with my team and regulars, to thank them for their support during such challenging times.”

Any locals who spot the ale on tour with the Greene King flags and share it on social media with #passthepint will be added into a randomly selected prize draw for the chance to win a £50 Greene King gift card.  

The pint of Greene King Ice Breaker Pale Ale will hopefully arrive at its final destination in Gateshead on Monday 19 July where it will be met with a synchronised ‘cheers’ from all of the participating pubs, to coincide with Freedom Day.
