Music festival at Kings Hill cashes in
Demelza cheque presentation
A charity concert which featured the likes of Katherine Jenkins, McFly, The Sugababes and X Factor star Stacey Solomon raised more than £40,000 for Kent charity Demelza.The charity’s first ever music festival in June, Music on the Hill, took place in June at Kings Hill in West Malling and proved a big hit.
Now organisers are already working on plans for the next event - taking place in 2013.
Organiser Colin Thacker handed over the cash to the Sittingbourne-headquartered organisation, with the money used to fund a nurse providing hospice at home care in Kent, East Sussex or south east London.
Demelza provides support and care for life-limited children, and their families.
