Supporting our future Festival Goers.
It has been our wish for many years to give a little back to those who most need it. SHC Bars have raised over £37,500 for various children’s charities over the years and wish to continue this through Retrofestival.
RetroFestival 2015 raised an amazing £5,000 through your kind donations and money raised through our Motorbike Raffle. So this year we’re aiming higher!
Our chosen charity for this event and all future ongoing events is ‘The Children’s Cancer Fund’ – Helping children and their families with a cancer diagnosis.
The Children’s Cancer Fund is a United Hospitable Charitable Fund and has been set up through kind donations and money raised through The Retrofestival, in memory of David Read, the creator of Retrofestival, and Lawrence Jezard, who has sadly recently lost his fight with cancer.
The wishes of the donors is that all monies should be used to benefit children and their families who are going through cancer treatment to bring smiles to their lives and make things a little bit easier during a very difficult time.
Our hope is that we can give every newly diagnosed child a “Bag of Smiles for all the Family”, this includes a voucher which can be exchanged for a family day out of their choice – so they can enjoy some precious family time and forget about the cancer for a few hours, along with magazines/puzzle books and other small items that will make their time in hospital a little more bearable. We know that a cancer diagnosis throws lives into turmoil and hopefully the “Bag of Smiles” will give the child and their family a boost as they adjust to the demands of treatment.
This year we will be launching the Retrofestival T-Shirt, all money raised through the sale of these shirts will be donated directly to the charity. We will also be running the Charity Auction so please bid high, also we will gratefully accept any special prizes that you can donate for the auction. There will be many collection points around the site too so please give generously, we keep our event affordable in the hope that you will find a few extra pounds to help this amazing cause.
We can’t do this without you, so please help make a few more smiles.
With kind thanks
Paul Jezard and the Retrofestival Team
INTRODUCING THE RETROFESTIVAL CHARITY T-SHIRT
In our bid to raise as much for charity as possible we are launching the 2017 RetroFestival T-shirts. Created by the amazingly talented Ed Org, this is the second of what we hope will become an annual collectors item from the show. The 2016 T-shirts are also still available.
Available at the show in 2 different designs for just £10 each, with all profit going to “The Children’s Cancer Fund”,
you’d be bonkers not to have one or two!
