The Sadie Rose Clifford Appeal received a donation of £1500 from funds raised at the third annual Royal Marquee charity festival in July.
All proceeds from the day-long music event, raised through ticket sales, barbecue and bar, have been donated to the appeal where it will be split between the two charities which supported Sadie, The Neuroblastoma Alliance and Families Against Neuroblastoma.
A further £600 has been donated to the Knaresborough Young Farmers in recognition of their help on the night. The funds will go toward the running of their clubhouse.
Local bands and DJs who played free of charge at the event include The Spector Effect, The Four 45s, Jamie Lindsey and Jim Pearson.
Joint organiser Mike Renton said:
We have been doing this for three years now, and for the first two years the event was run as a not-for-profit venture, however this year the farmer, Chris Green, and I decided to donate all profit to local causes.
The day was a great success and we are proud to donate the money to the charities which helped Sadie so much during her struggle with Neuroblastoma.
Locally sourced food and drink was a great addition to the festival, we are particularly grateful to Tancred Hall Farm in Whixley, Morrisons Boroughbridge and Daleside Breweries for their support.
I would like to thank the Young Farmers for their help on the day along with the bands and DJs who played for free and all those who made generous donations to the charities; your money will be put to good use.
The Royal Marquee charity festival will be held again next July.
