Music festival boosts local charities
Local charities have expressed their gratitude to Bures Music Festival after it raised more than £12,500.
The monies were recently handed out at a presentation ceremony. Among the many recipients were St Helena Hospice in Colchester and St Nicholas Hospice Care in Bury St Edmunds, each receiving a cheque for £1,250.
Peter Harries, festival committee chairman, said: “It’s truly inspiring for everyone involved in the festival to hear how the funds we distribute affect the lives of so many people.”
Bures Music Festival 2017 will take place July 5-9.
