Search on for music festival’s charity of the year
9:40pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
THE WORCESTER Music Festival is looking for its charity of the year.
The festival is particularly keen to hear from charities which use music as a form of therapy or are keen to introduce or improve music facilities as part of their overall approach.
Embracing diversity will also be important in the festival committee’s decision-making process.
Last year’s festival raised £6,000 for Worcester-based charity New Hope.
Jean Wilson, who runs the centre, said: “The £6,000 raised during last year’s festival will be spent on lots of things. New carpets, for starters, and new equipment and trips for the children.”
Since it started six years ago, the Worcester Music Festival has raised almost £25,000 for charity.
This year’s festival runs from from Friday, August 30 to Sunday, September 1.

The closing date for nominations is Thursday, February 28.
