A beer celebrating a school's 150th anniversary has been created by Hook Norton Brewery in Oxfordshire.

A Shining Light derives its name from Bloxham's School's Latin motto — Justorum Semita Lux Splendens (the path of the just is a shining light). The school has close links with the local community.

"We are very pleased that the family-owned Hook Norton Brewery, founded 11 years before the school in 1860, is supporting us in this way," said headmaster Mark Allbrook.

For every bottle sold, 5p is donated to the school's chosen charities.

"A Shining Light is a wonderful way of celebrating our 150th anniversary while raising money for the school's chosen charities - the Katharine House Hospice; the Tsogo Home Care Project in South Africa, an orphanage for the victim of aids, and the Disaster Emergency Committee Haiti Earthquake Appeal."

A 5p donation is being made to the charities for every bottle sold.
