The fifth annual Studhambury festival once again took the little village of Studham by storm for a record breaking year for CLIC Sargent, raising £8,100!
This year the festival included 12 different bands playing, with features from The Common People, Toffees, The Hallows and many more!
The festival did experience a little bit of rain but this certainly didn’t dampen anyone spirits! CLIC Sargent mum Lydia Banfield attended the event and was 'touched by everyone’s enthusiasm and commitment to support families like hers'.
One of the many fundraising activities available at the event was an auction for a customised Studhambury Strat & Marshall amp, barrel of booze and even their very own Studhambury t-shirts!
The festival raised an incredible and record breaking amount of £8,100 for children and young people with cancer, thanks to the generosity of everyone on the day.
The Studhambury team said: "A big thank you to all who donated either their time, prizes, hard earned cash or all of the above. With such a successful Studhambury this year we are all geared up and excited about next year and hope to have a date in the diary soon.”
A fantastic day
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Emma Taylor said: ”It was simply a fantastic day and the feedback we had from bands, volunteers and customers was all brilliant.
"We’re absolutely delighted with this year result. It really is such an amazing amount of money and it all goes towards helping CLIC Sargent to continue to support young lives facing cancer.”
"I’d like to thank everybody who came on the day to make it such a special event. From the committee who organised the day, to the public coming to watch the festival. The volunteers on the day who gave up their time to help and the red lion for hosting the festival. It was great to see so many people come together to support the event and everybody doing because they all know how wonderful the cause is.”
