Holbeach festival's cash boost for charity community hub
The team behind a popular South Holland music festival have donated more than a thousand pounds to a good cause.
Holbeach Music and Beer Festival’s Sean and Ann Taylor presented a cheque for £1,060 to Tonic Health in Spalding.
After being forced to cancel last year’s event due to the Covid-19 pandemic, more than 5,000 people descended on King’s Field in August to enjoy the festival.
Mr Taylor said: “Three amazing ladies - Gill Ward, Molly Booth and June Taylor raised £1,060 by asking guests to enter the £1 in the bucket lucky draw.
“We are really pleased to support the good work carried out by Tonic Health.
“Tonic Health is charity community hub for health and wellbeing, situated close to Spalding town centre.
“It houses a complementary therapy clinic, hosts a number of exercise classes, and supports a range of community-based projects throughout South Holland such as Little Miracles, Going Forward, Shaw Trust and Double Impact along with it’s own in-house run projects such as Autistic Led, FOCUS Dementia Groups and Advocacy, Safe Places & Men’s Shed to name a few.”
Top tribute acts such as Flash, The Kopycat Killers, Coldplace, Bon Gioivi, The Upbeat Beatles and Wild Boys took to the stage at the field - on the outskirts of Holbeach - on August, 6, 7 and 8.
Along with the bands, festival goers from far and wide enjoyed beer, food, a fun fair and a kids’ zone.
A shuttle bus brought in music lovers from Holbeach, while many guests took the chance to camp and stay over.
Organisers say they have high hopes that next year’s event will be ‘bigger and better’.
