Families who are being supported by a children’s hospice are being given free tickets to Hazy Days music festival in Weston.

The festival is being held in The Tropicana from July 7-8 and organiser Mark Whitehouse has invited the families from Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) to join in with the festivities for free.

Money raised from the event will also go to the charity, in Wraxall, which supports children with life-limiting conditions.

Mark said: “We have a really fantastic line-up this year and we hope to draw in even more festival-goers, which means more funds for CHSW.”

Newton Faulkner, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Reef are just some of the top names playing at the event.

Clare Toller and her family, from Weston, were supported by the hospice when Clare’s son Grayson was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

The Toller family will be going along to the festival again this year to support the hospice.
