Fundraising starts for Rock Diabetes festival in Trowbridge
6:00pm Tuesday 20th May 2014 in News
Fundraising for this year’s Rock Diabetes festival in Trowbridge is already under way.
The festival, on October 11 at the Civic Centre, is to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes and money towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Last Sunday organisers and volunteers took part in a three-legged pub crawl around all the pubs in Westbury with collection buckets, raising more than £350 for the charity.
The first of many warm-up gigs will be at Charlie’s Bar in Market Place, Westbury, on Sunday, when there will be live music, including Devizes band Burnthru.
There will also be a music quiz, where people can win two tickets to the festival.
Future fundraisers include bungee jumping from a helicopter, an awards night, a day of live music in Trowbridge Park and many more warm-up gigs around the area.
A line-up of local talent playing at the festival will be released soon. For more information on the festival and all the activities surrounding the event email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.rockdiabetes.co.uk
