A MUSIC festival held in Sudbury at the weekend has raised £350 for a respite cancer charity.

Stablefest III, held at the White Horse pub in North Street, attracted more than 300 people to hear the live music which took place during Saturday.

Among the eight bands performing were Lemon Party and Violet Bones. In addition, there were also five acoustic acts.

Organiser Andy Piper said: “We were a bit hurt by the weather in terms of the number of people that attended, but we reckon between 300 and 400 people came in during the course of the day.

“As one band left, another lot of supporters came in. It’s a local event and we like to put the money raised back into Sudbury.”

This year’s charity was the Eden-Rose Coppice, which turns unwanted or run-down woodland into conservation areas which can be used as a respite area for cancer patients and their families.
