SUCCESS OF LINTON FESTIVAL 2018 BENEFITS SIX LOCAL CHARITIES

Linton Festival enjoyed great success this year – we had amazing weather, fantastic bands, plenty of beer and cider on tap, not to mention scrumptious food stalls. However, we would not be able to hold the festival without the much-appreciated support from our regular and newbie festival goers, sponsors, volunteers and local villagers, all of whom contributed to what was a fabulous weekend in Linton – so a massive thank you to you all!

Special thanks go to the Alma Inn for allowing us to use their facilities and providing the beer tent (and fish and chips), and to the landowners for granting access to the festival site and allowing car parking and camping on the fields around Linton.

We are delighted to announce that this year, our six nominated local charities have benefited from a whopping £8,800 in sponsorship and donations raised/facilitated by the festival:

Hope Support Services – £5400 in conjunction with the Schuh Company
Hope also raised £700 in donations over the three-day event
Cystic Fibrosis – £700
Village of Linton trust (VOLT) – £350
Linton Village Hall – £1150
St Mary’s Church Linton – £300
Linton Brownies – £200
