Worcester Music Festival in appeal for charity partner
THE search is on for a charity to strike a chord with revellers at next year’s Worcester Music Festival.
Organisers of the free celebration, which showcases original and live music, are calling for causes from Worcestershire to put themselves forward to become the event’s official charity partner for next year’s event.
The festival has raised more than £30,000 for local organisations since it was launched in 2008 and the closing date for applications is Monday, January 20, with the final decision following in February.
Worcester Music Festival’s charity co-ordinator, Lisa-Marie Everall, urged organisations to put themselves forward.
“They might have just started up or have been established for a long time, they might help children or work to get vulnerable people back on their feet,” she said.
“While there are no hard and fast rules as to what we are looking for, it will help if music plays or could play a role in what they do, but ultimately, the main thing is they strike a chord with festival-goers.”
This year’s Worcester Music Festival raised £5,462 for Worcester Deaf Children’s Society and Sight Concern Worcestershire through collections, a raffle and wristband sales at the event, which attracted thousands to see more than 240 acts perform across 36 venues.
Next year’s event runs from Friday to Sunday, August 29 to 31.
