01 Oct Andsome amount raised for Air Ambulance & Rowcroft Hospice
Hunt’s Cider Festival was a huge success this year with a whopping £2004 raised for charity.
400 people headed to Broadleigh Farm, the home of Hunt’s Cider to party the night away with craft cider, lager and ales from local producers. Live music provided the perfect opportunity to dance the night away thanks to local artists including headline act I LOVE AMP.
Local favourite Cantina provided the food, cooked onsite over a firepit! The event was part of The Seafood Feast which saw Torbay celebrate the fishing industry in many ways including Hunt’s event.
£1002 will be gifted to Rowcroft Hospice in Torquay, this amount of money will allow them to provide care free of charge to patients, families and carers. Rosey Oakes, Community & Corporate Fundraising Manager at Rowcroft said, “£1000 to each charity is amazing! This will allow us to pay for two Care at Night Shifts, which enable the family of the patient to have a good nights sleep and half a dozen Music Therapy sessions which help ease stress and anxiety’.
A further £1002 will be gifted to Devon Air Ambulance, both charities play important roles within the county and are close to the hearts of the team at Hunt’s Cider. Annette Hunt said, ‘we are delighted to have raised over £2,000 for charity, I had the Air Ambulance land when I had an accident on a farm and can’t thank them enough for their support, this was our biggest event to date and that’s thanks to the work of the team here at the cider farm and the support of the local community’. The work now begins for next years event!
