The Power of Music: One off garden party to mini festival in 6 years
In my spare time i am involved with a small female choir who sing at a number of events in the Cambridge area including this mini festival, Hendstock.
One of the interesting elements to this festival for me is how the power of a small event can not only raise so much money for a charity but how they can start to attract sponsorship and commercial interest. Six years ago David and Hayley Donnan organised a small garden party to celebrate the life of their close friend Ian Hendry. Now in it’s sixth year the event is attended by over 300 invited guests, has over 24 acts, has raised over £5500 for Meningitis Now and attracts sponsorship from some of the big brands in the Cambridgeshire area.
