Music festival in Cayton raises £2,000

A music festival celebrated Cayton Playing Fields Association’s 50th anniversary raised £2,000.

The money was shared equally between Saint Catherine’s and Martin House children’s hospice.

The event was organised by the club’s committee including secretary Malcolm MacGregor, chair Rob Goodwill, Kim Goodwill, Joanne Calvert and Brian Pilsbury.

Malcolm said they were “astonished” at the amount raised, “because we have never done anything like it before”.

Malcolm’s son Paul organised the festival line-up of five or six bands including his band Super-Fi.

“Hundreds of people attended and everyone gave their time for free”, he added.

The event featured a bouncy castle, a raffle, a tombola and an auction.
