Fun day and cider festival in memory of Melksham man
12:00pm Sunday 22nd July 2012 in Latest News
A fun day and cider festival will be held to raise money for Dorothy House in aid of a Melksham man next weekend.
The “Row-a-palooza” takes place at The West End Inn on Semington Road in memory of Rowland “Rowly” Boys, who lost his battle with cancer early last year at the age of 31.
A group of friends have vowed to hold a fundraiser each year to raise money for charities that supported Mr Boys and his family, with this event in aid of Dorothy House Hospice.
Last year family and friends held a sponsored walk to the top of Ben Nevis and raised several thousand pounds, and this year they decided to hold a cider festival at Rowly’s regular, the West End.
The event starts at noon on Saturday, July 28, and will feature children’s entertainment, face painting, a barbecue and hog roast, a DJ and the cider festival.
Live music will be provided by bands El Nino and Broken Silence. Entry is free and all proceeds will go to Dorothy House.
