Transforming beer kegs and giving them a new lease of life as various objects from planters to rubbish bins and collection boxes is raising money for a local charity.
Real ale fan Phil Goldsmith, from Lowestoft, has been upcycling the vessels for the Louise Hamilton Centre in Gorleston and has so far raised £1,200.
He was keen to raise the funds as a thank you for the care and support his father-in-law, Ian Spencer, had received at the palliative care centre.
Having set out to raise £100 through his crafty scheme he enlisted the help of neighbour, Ray Roseblade, who made the wooden stoppers.
Since then Adnams has donated some new kegs, and he is now hoping to hit £2,000 and bag a place on the butterfly wall of fame.
