40-42 Ock St, Abingdon OX14 5BZ
Our supporter and good friend, Laura Northover has decided to host a 40th birthday extravaganza to celebrate her birthday and to support our work.
Here is why she is doing it. Thank you Laura, your support means a lot to us.
“I’m hosting a one day charity music festival at the Brewery Tap in Abingdon to raise money and awareness for our locally based mental health charity, Restore.
The initial idea for this event was to celebrate my 40th birthday surrounded by things I’m passionate about.
As I began making plans, I realised quite quickly that this would be the perfect opportunity to raise money and awareness for a local charity.
The decision to support Restore was based on a number of reasons, most importantly I have seen for myself the positive effect their work can achieve.
So why a music festival?
I have always been extremely passionate about music, particularly live music and for me it’s one of the best feelings in the world. Ever since my first gig at the age of 14, nothing makes me happier than planning a diary full of gigs/festivals.
I wanted my 40th birthday to be a combination of my passion for music and something which could involve the local community for a day of fun & celebrating.
It made perfect sense to me to plan a music festival in a local venue which has a strong community atmosphere, one of which I have been part of for the last 10 years.
Supporting Restore means a lot to me, the recovery groups, the support and coaching they offer can be life changing for so many people. It gives me great pleasure to celebrate my 40th birthday alongside this incredible charity, who are also celebrating their 40th year.”
Laura’s been planning this for months and we’re really looking forward to supporting this event in our community. Come along and make it an extra special birthday for Laura.
