Waldstock funds given to disability arts charity

FUNDS raised at a music festival have been handed over to a disability arts charity.

Paul Wood, a representative of the Waldstock Charity Music Festival, took to the stage at the Cambridge Junction last week to award �600 to Inspire, which runs the Funky Flamingo project allowing disabled adults and children play live music, DJ, and get into film-making.

Inspire’s director, Lorraine von Gehlen, was delighted to receive the donation. “We’ve really been struggling to put on our club nights recently and this donation has been a big help,” she said.

In August, Waldstock handed over a cheque for �1,750 to Medics and awarded a further �200 to the Mayor’s Appeal, which this year is Uttlesford Volunteer Centre.

The Waldstock Festival was held in July at the Fighting Cocks and plans are already underway for further funds to be raised for good causes when the festival returns to the Wendens Ambo venue in June.
