Rev­ellers en­joy Hunts Cider Fes­ti­val

MORE than £2,000 was raised for lo­cal char­i­ties as Hunt’s cider hosted a Cider Fes­ti­val on the farm where it makes its craft cider.

Four hun­dred peo­ple headed to Broadleigh Farm near Stoke Gabriel to party the night away with craft cider, lager and ales from lo­cal pro­duc­ers.

Live mu­sic came from an ar­ray of lo­cal artists in­clud­ing head­line act I Love Amp.

Cantina pro­vided the food, cooked on site over a firepit, with the event form­ing part of the Seafood Feast in which Tor­bay cel­e­brated the fish­ing in­dus­try.

Rowcroft Hos­pice will re­ceive £1,002, as will the Devon Air Am­bu­lance.

Rosey Oakes of Rowcroft said: “£1,000 to each char­ity is amaz­ing! This will al­low us to pay for two care at night shifts, which en­able the fam­ily of the pa­tient to have a good night’s sleep’ and half a dozen mu­sic ther­apy ses­sions which help ease stress and anx­i­ety.”

Both char­i­ties are close to the hearts of the team at Hunt’s Cider.

An­nette Hunt said: “We are de­lighted to have raised over £2,000 for char­ity.

“I had the air am­bu­lance land when I had an ac­ci­dent on a farm and can’t thank them enough for their sup­port. This was our big­gest event to date and that’s thanks to the work of the team here at the cider farm and the sup­port of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“The work now be­gins for next year’s event!”
