September saw the return of the annual Choko beer festival, and GA Electrical were more than happy to show their support and sponsorship for a fourth and record breaking year, with over £12,000 being raised for Choko and local charities.
With a fabulous variety of real ales, lagers and ciders, fantastic food, music and family entertainment, topped off with stunning sunny weather, the day was enjoyed by all.
Choko was set up in Cholsey as a community linking project in 2005 with the aim of raising funds for disadvantaged families in the Kodumela region of South Africa – hence the name from Cholsey and Kodumela.
GA Electrical has enjoyed supporting this fantastic scheme for a number of years.
So far over £80,000 has been raised, and the Beer Festival has become the biggest single source of funds as well as firm fixture in the Cholsey village calendar.
The local charity, Footsteps is also supported by the festival. The Dorchester based Footsteps Centre specialises in the intensive rehabilitation of children and young adults with cerebral palsy and other neurological and neuromotor disorders.
