Peterboat charity festival raises thousands for the ALF

Article by Greg Fidgeon

SCORES of music fans made their way to Old Leigh last weekend for the annual charity festival at The Peterboat in aid of the Aaron Lewis Foundation.

The two-day event kicked off on Saturday with bands including Big Jacket, Joe Gibson & Co, Southchurch, The Super Mega Fun Time Band, The Long Run and The Fifty-Four Plates.

And as the sun shone on Sunday, the likes of Feel The Steel, Grand Reunion, The Generators, Carousel, Ground For Divorce and The Maxibrites took to the stage.

A packed-out Peterboat helped to raise a whopping £2,135.12 across the weekend, which exceeded the total generated from last year’s event.

The ALF’s head of sponsorship, Patric Redding, said: “This is such a busy time of year for the ALF in terms of fundraising and so we are delighted so many people put their hands in the pockets once again.

“It was a fantastic weekend of music with so much talent on display. It was great to see so many families come down and enjoy the music and help our cause.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the bands for taking part, and of course to the wonderful staff and management at The Peterboat for their hard work over the weekend.”
