LeeStock donations reach £100,000
After seeing LeeStock music festival attended by more people than ever before, organisers have been able to hand over their largest ever donation to the Willow Foundation.
The charity set up in memory of Lee Dunford, who died 10 years ago, has now given more than £100,000 to the Willow Foundation which gives people once in a lifetime opportunities.
Before his death Lee and his band spent a day in London at a recording studio.
Lee’s parents Rob and Rosie Dunford said: “After a very successful LeeStock this year, we had an inclination that the donation to Willow would be more than we had donated in the past. We were amazed to find that the donation had taken us up to £100,000. We never thought when we started raising money with all our different events,that we would raise so much.
“We are very proud that this has been raised in Lee’s name and kept his memory alive. We cannot thank these people enough who organise, help and attended the festival every year and feel that although we lost Lee, we have gained many more special friends and memories and from a very sad occasion something nice has risen out of it. We will always miss Lee but having the festival in his memory makes this loss a little more bearable.”
