The Saints Winter Beer and Wine Festival in Ipswich this weekend will have a special section dedicated to Ipswich Town fans.

Anglia Care Trust is hosting quizzes during the Friday and Saturday afternoon sessions at St Peter’s by the Waterfront to raise money for the organisation.

The 1pm quiz on Saturday will feature a special section for Town fans ahead of the Derby County game.

The festival opens from 12pm on Friday and Saturday with entry £3 on the door.

The Beer&Co.-run festival will feature a host of real ales and craft beer, world wines, tasting notes, home-made cake and live music.

Anglia Care Trust director Jane Simpson said: “This will really support our services which give people the stability and support they need to enable them to realise their full potential by: helping people to keep a roof over their heads, helping people to stay safe and helping people to be heard.”
