Mak­ing mu­sic to help change a young life

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

LET me tell you how at­tend­ing a mu­sic fes­ti­val can not only lift your spir­its and in­spire you but also con­trib­ute to a very wor­thy cause that could change the life of one young Hare­field res­i­dent for­ever.

From 11am this Sun­day (Au­gust 14) a mo­men­tous gath­er­ing of lo­cal mu­si­cal acts will take to the stage at Hare­field United Foot­ball Club for what has be­come col­lo­qui­ally known as ‘Hare­stock’ to raise funds to send a now ‘fa­mous’ 8-year-old girl named Jess Shep­herd for vi­tal treat­ment

at an Amer­i­can clinic.

Brave Jess was di­ag­nosed with a rare child­hood can­cer when she was aged just 3 years old which im­me­di­ately went into re­mis­sion. How­ever, it has re­turned for the fourth time and now Jess needs ur­gent treat­ment from Amer­i­can can­cer spe­cial­ists. This is where your help is needed.

Get your­self down to Hare­field United Foot­ball Club, Break­s­peare Road, Hare­field, UB9 6NE this Sun­day for a great day of mu­sic and fun.

Your £10 en­try fee goes di­rectly to­wards the costs of Jess’s flight, treat­ment and liv­ing ar­range­ments in the USA. Here’s a run­down of what’s in store: 11.00 - Nicky B 11.35 - Ed­die 12.00 - Ge­orgie B 12.45 - Ron­nie Ryall 13.30 - The Hare­field Ukulele Or­ches­tra 14:15 - Mick Mancini 15:00 - Paul C 15:45 - Re­lease The Peach 17:00 - Un­der­sound 18:00 - Gaz South Band 19:10 - My Mate Jess

The usual fes­ti­val stan­dards like beers and burg­ers will be on sale plus a few pleas­ant sur­prises.

You can pur­chase your ticket(s) on the day or via the foot­ball club, the Hare­field Pub or from Pre­booc Cabs on Harvil Road, Hare­field. In­ci­den­tally, Pre­booc Cabs (01895 825825) are run­ning ex­tra cheap rates for fares go­ing to and from ‘Hare­stock’ and £1 from each fare is go­ing straight to Jess’s fund.
