A huge thank you to Kevin Newton, Linda Edge and all who bought and wrapped presents for The Open Arms. Christmas Day will be extra special this year thanks to your kindness and generosity.
A huge belated and sincere thanks to Zoe and all at Kitsch catering and Jumping Bean Burrito at Bestival who very kindly got in touch with our catering manager to donate loads of food to us.
We went to the Bestival site and were very warmly greeted by a lovely crew who helped us to load up the van with lots of goodies! We are so grateful to you for thinking of us and we hope to see you all next year.
We are all very excited and looking forward to this charity concert which sees the release of the charity single "Helping Someone". Five Island charities will benefit from Saturdays concert and the proceeds of the single. We would like to thank everyone involved especially the lovely Linda Edge whose idea it was and who has been the driving force, turning a brilliant idea into reality. Thank you Linda, you are a star! x
