Even before the Festival started, we received the fantastic news that amongst other donations of raffle prizes for the Festival, ’Heybrook Music’ of Leigh, had donated a Guitar and Amp worth £275.00.

Team member and ’The Avenue’ Public House regular Michael O’Brien, reported this evening that “The first night had already proved a great success and that a large sum of money had already been raised for the team.”
