From nothing to a festival in only six weeks
2:10pm Wednesday 5th September 2012 in News
A CHARITY event organised by young people in Worcester raised just under £200 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The charity music festival took place at the Pavilion in the Park in Cripplegate Park and was organised by youngsters taking part in Engage 4 Life, a Government-funded six-week scheme aimed at 15 to 17-year-olds that took place during the summer holidays.
The group of eight young people organised the festival, which focused on performances from local youth bands and artists and also included a bouncy castle, book sales and a raffle.
Stuart Jones, who was in charge of the group, said: “It was a great success, it went very well. I’m immensely proud of them to put on an event like that in two weeks.
“From a group of people who didn’t really know each other, they worked really hard and were very dedicated for six weeks.”
