Story posted on

A MUSIC festival weekend in aid of the Nick Jones Foundation for Bereaved Children is being held this Friday and Saturday, with support from local bands.

Westbury man, Nick Jones has experienced heart problems since 2012 after a small stroke. He was later diagnosed with malignant hypertension, which attacks the heart and internal organs. He is now being supported by the Dorothy House team for end-of-life planning.

A foundation has been set up in his name, receiving charitable status last month, to support children who are dealing with bereavement.

A music festival weekend, called The Big Westbury Weekender, is being held on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July at Westbury Rugby Club to raise vital funds for the charity.
