Beats Cancer was a great community event

I am writing to thank the organisers and the people who attended the incredible event “Beats Cancer” on the bandstand in the Castle grounds in Clitheroe.

The day was just amazing with so many happy friendly people experiencing some of the most powerful and exciting music I have ever heard.

For the kids there was a brilliant young lady called Maisy painting faces all day and some outstanding characters such as Minions and Olaf from Frozen provided very kindly by Steve from 4Kids for everyone to have their picture taken with.

There was a selection of local DJs and producers playing house music that spanned the past 25 years and mixed with the sunshine and an unbeatable crowd of friendly people aged one month to 90 years.

An astonishing £1,800 was raised for Cancer Research UK.

As the sun set on the day the most beautiful silhouettes of people dancing were cast onto the castle, providing the perfect backdrop to this perfect day.

A special thank you to Johnson Matthey and Rapid I.T. Parts for sponsoring the event, which means every penny raised can go to the charity.

I hope to see many more completely unique, community events like this from the “Nothing Major” team and look forward to seeing again some of the lovely people I met on the day, dancing along to the superb music that they deliver so well.

Thank You
