BUSINESSES are today being asked to donate items to help raise money for St Elizabeth Hospice through the Kesgrave Music Festival.
Organisers say that fundraising for the annual festival to be held on Saturday, August 9, is going well, but now they need as many donations as possible to use for a charity auction and as prizes for a quiz night.
The festival, which is being staged for the third time, is in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice in memory of Kate Moyes, who lived in Kesgrave, and passed away in August 2005 after a spell in the hospice.
There have already been a number of events, including race and casino nights, which have raised some much needed cash.

Debbie McCallum, one of the organisers, said: “Over the years we have held a number of fundraising events and we've always had great support from the local community in Kesgrave. Without their support we wouldn't be able to put this festival on so please help us again this year to reach our target.
“We would like to thank everybody for their continued support. Thanks also to those who donated Easter eggs and their time for the Easter Egg hunt near the Foxhall Stadium.”
