Summer party proceeds handed to Karen Ball Fund

Published: 29 Jul 14, 11:05am  |  Author: DG Music

DG Music was delighted to present the proceeds of our summer party to an outstanding local charity.

Hundreds of music fans enjoyed an evening of entertainment in the grounds of Oakham Castle to celebrate our 10th anniversary and helped us to raise £2,089 for the Karen Ball Fund.

The charity supports seriously ill people and their carers in Rutland. 

Director David Graham is pictured presenting a cheque to the charity’s chairman Jim Bolton and treasurer Derek Eyers. 

Jim said: “This money will help us to continue to support the sick and the needy in the community.” 

Derek added: “It’s important to note this money is going to be used in Rutland. It’s a local charity for local people. Not a penny goes on admin – every pound goes into the fund.” 

The summer party included performances by some of DG Music’s best acts including Funk Soul Brother, The Houndogs, The Atlantics, Govannen and Monroe who all gave up their time for free. 

David said: “We wouldn’t have been able to raise any of this money without the generosity of the bands who played on the day, the PA and production crew from DG Music, all the volunteers who helped with the event and everyone who came along.”

The Karen Ball Fund provides medical equipment, palliative care and practical help to seriously ill people and their carers. The money will also go towards the charity's goal of installing a defibrillator in every village in Rutland.
