A ‘Back to the ‘60s’ revival event was held at the Riverside Caravan Club in aid of Aldingbourne Trust.

500 people attended and enjoyed great music from original artists including Johnny Delvin & The Detours and friends, The Diamonds with Pete Manville, The Fenmen with Roy Haines, The Southbeats, Cosy and Colin Madeley. The performers came from across the UK and as far away as Italy, giving their time for free.

This year the Back to the Sixties committee chose to support the Aldingbourne Trust, a charity which supports adults with learning disabilities. The Riverside Caravan Park generously provided the venue free of charge for the event and Yamaha Music provided stunning raffle prizes including a keyboard and guitar. The winner of the keyboard generously donated it to Access Music, a therapeutic project run by the Aldingbourne Trust, supporting people with disabilities to perform and make music.

Sue Livett, managing Ddrector of the Aldingbourne Trust, attended and said: “It was an amazing event with great music organised by a fabulous team who generously gave all the profits to the Aldingbourne Trust”.

£5178.21 was raised.
