Organisers of LeeStock music festival have hailed this year’s music event a resounding success, after raising £20,000 for charity.

The annual event, which returned to the grounds of Melford Hall in May, is held in memory of Lee Dunford, who died from Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2006, aged 21.

Each year, proceeds from the festival are donated to the Willow Foundation, which provides days out for young adults suffering with life-threatening diseases.

Mr Dunford and his family received support from the charity during his treatment.

Thousands of music fans turned out to the sold-out two-day weekend event to watch headline acts including Welsh rockers Feeder, Reef and alternative rock band Republica.

“The festival gets bigger and bigger each year and we’re proud to say the money raised for the Willow Foundation keeps going up, too,” said organiser Edd Keogh.

“We’re tremendously grateful for all the support this year and are already looking forward to delivering an even bigger and better LeeStock in 2019.”
