Community Spirit

LR Partnership Events and Staffs Fest have been very active in supporting worthy causes within the local West Midlands community initially the Festival championed the Millie Bea’s Walking Wish Charity which helped raise funds and awareness of the money needed for operation to help Millie to walk;£75,000 as the operation and following physiotherapy wasn’t funded by the NHS. Millie Bea attends the festival each year with her family and one of the Marquees is named after her. The following year money was raised for AED Donate a charity for distributing defibrillators. In 2019 the charity championed was The Band of Builders a fantastic charity, like DIY SOS. This year our chosen charity is Hearts & Hands Stafford

Stafford College Media students filmed the festival as part of their college course criteria and work experience and will be back in 2021
