A spectacular 12 hour music festival was held on 7th July in aid of the ‘Better Life Appeal’ which supports The All Wales Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre at the University Hospital Llandough.

This is the first year that Beth Clarke has organised the wonderful Inhale the Music Festival at the Lookout Café Bar in Cardiff Bay and raised the fantastic amount of £3,500, which will help people living with Cystic Fibrosis in Wales. Beth hopes to make this an annual event.

10 Bands played from 1pm until 1am and entertained the crowds whilst they danced and frolicked all afternoon and evening. A hog roast was available as well as a raffle and silent auction.

The bands who all donated their time free of charge included,

Gentlemen prefer Blondes Liana Harding aka Shirley Classy Wyburn & Wayne Sion Dom Reynolds Kitchen Jammers Lee Gilbert Hegsy and the Elements Skalet Heat Patrol (Headlining)

Beth said, ‘I’ve been a patient at the Wales Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre for nearly 19 years now and although the staff are incredible, the facilities need to be improved so that’s the reason we are fundraising and aiming to raise £1.3 to refurbish the new ward. Our aim was to have fun, enjoy the music whilst raising some vital funds, which we most certainly did’.

Georgina Burke, fundraiser for the Health Charity said, ‘A huge thank you to Beth and everyone who helped organise this amazing music festival. Its events like these that help us raise the money needed to fund projects such as refurbishing the new Cystic Fibrosis ward at the University Hospital Llandough. Beth has seen first-hand how her donations can help improve the environment for our service users which is why she continues to be such a wonderful ambassador for the Health Charity and for the Cystic Fibrosis Ward.
