BT’s annual music festival for staff, friends and family helped raise more than £4,000 for the NSPCC and Childline.

The Additude event featured more than 3,500 people gathering at Adastral Park in Martlesham Heath on June 24 to enjoy music from headline European party act Talent, local band Ska’d 4 Life and BT’s Summer Jones.

Elsewhere the site had a funfair, stalls and fire engine rides to help keep youngsters entertained.

The day has become a fixture on the Adastral Park calendar, helping to thank the staff for their hard work and raise much-needed money for BT’s charity partners.

Tim Whitley, Adastral Park managing director said: “This year’s Additude festival was the best one we have ever held.

“It was great to see so many colleagues and their friends and families enjoying the music and rides. The fact we also raised so much money for charity was the icing on the cake.”
