Tinnies at 10: Huw Edwards showcases Welsh beer helping raise money for the NHS
BBC Newsreader Huw Edwards has showcased a special Welsh beer helping raise money for the NHS.
The broadcaster shared a photo of himself in the BBC studio with a few tins of the limited edition NHS tribute brew by Felinfoel Brewery.
The craft brewery is donating a chunk of the proceeds from the beer, which now appears to have sold out, to the health service. The brewery was built in 1878 in Felinfoel, a small village near Llanelli.
Huw Edwards tweeted: “Oh yes. Tinnies at Ten. Thanks @FelinfoelAles for your NHS tribute brew.”

Percolated Design and Reel Label Solutions donated the design time and labels for the multi-coloured can, which is emblazoned with a dragon.
On the front of the tin, it says: “Thank you NHS and front line heroes.”
Percolated Design said: “This is one of our latest designs and with the proceeds from the sale of these beers being donated to the NHS, we couldn’t be prouder to work with a great Welsh company such as Felinfoel Brewery.
Llanelli MP Nia Griffith said: “Top work from Felinfoel Brewery who have created this limited edition NHS Heroes Ale.”
