A HARD-earned beer at the end of the workweek could do more than quench your thirst if poured from The Guildford Hotel’s community keg.

The James Street venue’s good deeds initiative is raising funds for nominated charities and community groups each Friday night.

All proceeds from every $8 pint from the community keg will be donated to a chosen cause.

The brew, as well as the cause, will rotate and recently began with Perth Local by Feral Brewing for the Swan Districts Women’s Team.

Funds made from the Baskerville drop will support the club’s Female Football Pathways Program to encourage participation, education and to develop young female coaches.

It will help them buy elite training equipment and appoint specialised coaches, as well as with a Women’s Game Day at Bassendean Oval.

Team captain Kara Donnellan said the development of their younger players was extremely important to the club.

“Obviously, with the new AFL Women’s League we want as many players drafted as possible,” she said.

“The money will be put towards different resources in building our (pathways) program that’s pretty strong at the moment but we can always up the anti and make it better.

“It’s fantastic that The Guildford Hotel is giving back to the community and it’s just fantastic to be part of it and we’re very thankful as a football club and the women’s team side of it.”

The hotel wants to support local causes that need “a little love” including an individual, project, business, club or event.
