The Wheelpark for Ferndown’s fundraising campaign held a free Music Night hosted by the Nightjar Ferndown last Sunday (13 July) in direct competition with the World Cup Final.
Local Acts Gareth Woodford, Mumma! Heidi Redsell, Chris Payn, Katharine Levi and Matt Black performed and over £300 was donated towards the campaign fund. The evening was so successful from a fundraising and awareness perspective that further events of this type are already being planned.
Fundraiser Steve Lugg said, “We have so much musical talent in this area and need more live music in East Dorset. This was a perfect opportunity and on World Cup Final night more than 100 people made donations showing the cultural demand, and also support for our Skatepark extension, so badly needed for our young adults and children in Ferndown.”
