FESTIVALGOERS will be able to support the NSPCC’s work with children and young people at this year’s music festival at Tudor Grange Park.
The children’s charity has been chosen by Solihull Summerfest to be the festival’s charity of the year and will be present at the festival weekend, July 22 and 23, with a stall, raffle and a prize draw to help raise awareness and vital funds for children in the West Midlands.
Ian Rogers, founder and organiser of Solihull Summerfest, said: “I am delighted to have the NSPCC represented at this year’s Solihull Summerfest.
“We’re a close community in Solihull and the tragic deaths of Arthur Labinjo Hughes and Alfie Steele in the Midlands in recent years really shocked us all.
“We felt passionate about the need to do something and wanted to help prevent this from happening in our community again. Together with the NSPCC, we want to do our bit to support children and families in Solihull and across the West Midlands.”
Amanda Synnott, NSPCC community fundraising manager for the West Midlands said: “Music has the power to bring people together and to change lives and I would like to give a massive thanks to Solihull Summerfest.
“By giving the NSPCC their support and for providing us with this opportunity at the festival, the organisers are helping to highlight the importance that we all play in safeguarding children and young people.”
The NSPCC’s helpline is available for any adults who have concerns about a child.
Childline is available around the clock for children to discuss any concerns they have, at childline.org.uk, or on 0800 1111.
