The event at the Sandy pub saw punters flocking through the doors, but more importantly, it raised more than £2,240 for CLIC Sargent, a sum which will be swelled further after a £1,500 donation from Santander to the charity for children with cancer and their families.

“There are far to many of you to mention individually, from the bands that gave their time to those that cooked, cleared glasses, manned stalls, and even turned up to help the next day with the big count, none of this would have been possible without you.

“And of course, those that turned up to listen to a day of wonderful music and dug deep in their pockets to help a wonderful charity.
