press release 10 August 2010
Leading Lancashire family brewer Daniel Thwaites has today announced the winner of its Worth Walking For competition.
The active competition encouraged hundreds of people throughout the country to pull on their walking boots and take part in some of the nation’s favourite walks to unveil the secret location of a golden Thwaites Wainwright bottle.
Discovering the secret location was 22 year old Samantha Ashworth from Bury, who completed the six mile walk from Ramsbottom railway station to Peel Tower in May with her friend and regular walking companion Amelia Armour.
Lee Williams, Marketing Manager at Daniel Thwaites said:”Thwaites Wainwright is renowned for its lightly hopped taste and universal appeal with both men and women. Because of this and its links to the walking guidebook author Alfred Wainwright, we decided to host a walking competition to get people active with a chance to win a golden bottle and a cheque for £3,000.”

Samantha regularly enjoys Daniel Thwaites beer and saw the competition promoted on a Thwaites Wainwright bottle in her local supermarket. She said: “I am a keen walker and love getting out in the country where it is nice and peaceful. I had not heard of Alfred Wainwright before I entered the competition, but since I went on the walk I have been checking out his guidebooks.”
Thwaites Wainwright has a fresh and lovely citrus flavour, ideal for quenching your thirst after a good walk in the outdoors. Samantha continued:” The walk took about two hours to complete but we did stop off for a glass of Thwaites Wainwright up Holcombe Hill!”
Samantha was presented with a limited edition Thwaites Wainwright golden bottle and a cheque for £3,000 by Lancashire County Cricketer, Stephen Moore. Runners up prizes included 20 Thwaites Wainwright walking fleeces.
Daniel Thwaites brewery signed a new three year title sponsorship deal with Lancashire County Cricket Club earlier this year.
