Ainslie team up with local breweries to raise money for Soldier On

On Friday September 1st Ainslie Football & Social Club hosted the very first Local Brews & Chews Beer Dinner in conjunction with local breweries Bentspoke, Capital Brewing Co. and PACT Beer Co. The night was full of good food with perfectly paired craft beers with over 120 guests also enjoying live music, an open Q&A with the brewers themselves and an opportunity to support Soldier On.

Soldier On ambassador and Veteran, Sheree Martin, spoke on the night sharing her firsthand experience in participating in the Soldier On support programs which focus on the physical and mental health of serving members of the military as well as first responders. A variety of programs and services aid those who have served, their communities and families, and work towards their future. Employment, recovery and reintegration services just some of the platforms available.
