On the 16th May 2015 The Link Foundation will be attending Let’s Rock the Moor festival in Cookham, Berkshire as we have been chosen as a charity of choice for the 4th year running! This family friendly festival features a line-up of some fantastic acts from the 80’s such as Level 42, Rick Astley, Bucks Fizz. If you’d like to read more about what we do at the festival then below is what happened in 2014!
Last year’s event saw the The Link Foundation being chosen for the third year running as ‘charity of choice’ for a local festival in Cookham, Let’s Rock the Moor. It was the event’s sixth year and hosted by Pat Sharpe from Absolute 80’s Radio show. We saw a plethora of 80’s bands including Kim Wilde, Chas and Dave and T’pau.
The Link Foundation sold cakes, transferable tattoos, branded balloons & slap bands – which the children loved – along with running a tombola throughout the day. We had a huge amount of friends and family volunteering to help and we really cannot thank you all enough. It created a great atmosphere and it’s a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful festival. We raised much needed funds for local children who are in desperate need of basic essentials, and continued to raise awareness through our stalls and merchandise.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Nick Billinghurst who organises this local event, for choosing The Link Foundation to once again be the charity of choice.
