Brewing up the perfect fundraiser
In North East London, production has begun on a new drink at Watling Street Beer; the Nighting-Ale. As its name might suggest, owner Rudi was inspired by his time volunteering at the NHS Nightingale London. He decided to put his business to good use by creating a brand new ale with proceeds going towards our emergency COVID-19 appeal.

Rudi, creator of the Nighting-Ale, began volunteering at the Nightingale Hospital – part of Barts Health NHS Trust – having been inspired by the dedication and selflessness NHS staff apply to their work everyday.

Closer to home, his girlfriend is a doctor. “I wanted to get involved as close to the frontline as possible as a way to be supportive of her and to be able to relate to how she might need emotional support,” says Rudi.

“I started out as a volunteer porter, but as we all know, the Nightingale was set up at record speeds to rise to the demands of the pandemic. So, I found myself climbing the ranks fairly quickly and ended up being one of the Duty Managers.”

Working at the NHS Nightingale was full-on, and patient care was obviously the priority.

“Although we fortunately didn’t need to get to full capacity, it was still full-on and patient care was obviously priority. Working at NHS Nightingale was just fantastic. Everyone, from the cleaning teams to the Exec leads, were all fabulous to work with.”

The beer commemorates Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday this year. It is a vegan-friendly, American pale ale. £1 per can goes towards our COVID-19 appeal, which is funding research and support for NHS staff and patients that will continue long into the future.
