A Shropshire brewery has joined a fundraising scheme to mark the 90th anniversary of a Royal British Legion branch.

Hobsons Brewery has launched the Old Comrade beer for the Cleobury Mortimer branch's anniversary, with 5p from each bottle sale going to the Poppy Appeal.

The special edition beer was launched with the help of a long-standing Legion member, 91-year-old George Poyner.

Mr Poyner was awarded the MBE for his work for the community in 2002.
