Music Festival hit the right notes for local charity

Last month Andover Radio organised a music festival at the Angel Inn that celebrated the local musicians we have here in Andover but also to raise money for local charity Kids On Track

Last month at their summer camp at Farleigh school, Andover Radio Commercial director James Williams was proud to present a cheque for £227.85 that was raised from the event. The money was raised from donations from patrons and a raffle where local businesses provided prizes to be raffled. The event was organised with the purpose of highlighting the great array of local musical talent that is in Andover and to raise funds for local charity, Kids on Track.

The event was organised by Andover Radio and was sponsored by Painters Direct, The Tea Cosy and Burford Stoves & Flues.

James said “It was a pleasure to be able to use our event to raise money for this brilliant charity whop do so much for kids in this area. Kiki and her team do amazing stuff for these kids. I’m happy that with this money they can continue to do great things”

Kids on Track is a small charity that provides activity camps during the school holidays for children from the Andover area. Their fun-filled days regularly include sport, arts and craft, cooking, music and drama, together with specialist activities such as street dance, circus skills, woodland den building and the obligatory nerf war.

Founder Kiki Godson said “Our summer camps have over 50 children and we try and match that with the same number of volunteers, this comes with a tremendous expense of time and money but is so worth it when we see the reaction of the children, the input from the volunteers and the efforts made by fundraisers”.
