Money raised during Weston-super-Mare’s inaugural Hazy Days music festival last summer have been handed to a vital North Somerset children’s charity.

The event showcased a number of local bands when it took place at the Tropicana last July, but was run on a non-profit basis – meaning £2,000 which was raised could this week be presented to the Children’s Hospice South West.

Hazy Days organiser Mark Whitehouse thanked sponsors and helpers, and said: “The HD17 team have made it their goal this year to raise even more money for this amazing charity, and are looking into ways of doing some very special things especially with the headline acts we have playing.

“We hope you will support us so that we can help the charity to continue to care for children with life-limiting conditions.”

Hazy Days will take place on July 7 and 8, and feature headline performances from Newton Faulkner and Fun Lovin’ Criminals. Visit www.hazydaysfestival.com for details.
