A Masham brewery is doing its bit to help communities affected by the recent flooding.

T&R Theakston Ltd has produced a special beer called 'Noah's Ark Ale' and will donate money to support the flood relief effort.

Executive Director Simon Theakston said: "We have all been horrified by the extent of the recent flooding and the severe impact on the lives of individuals and households all over the North of the country.

"We wanted to do something directly to help, and so decided to do what we do best and to create a new brew to help raise funds to directly aid the affected regions.

"For every pint of Noah's Ark Ale sold, we shall be donating 10p to community foundations covering the North of England, our home patch, and affected areas in North East Scotland.

"We very much expect that the beer will go down well with our customers, and that a worthy sum is raised for such a compelling cause."
