A family is holding an all-day music festival in memory of their teenage brother who died in 2008.
Jake Childerly, of Marston Road, Lidlington, died at Addenbrooke’s Hospital after he was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder just a week after he was taken ill.
His brother and sister Lloyd and Francesca Cleverly have now organised the event Jake’s Day to raise money for the hospital and remember their brother.
Lloyd, 25, said: “Every year since Jake died a big group of our family and close friends of Jake and anyone who Jake meant something to really, has got together to remember him.
“We thought it was one of those things that would fade out in a couple of years but it has just got bigger.
“We decided to move to the pub after our little house got a bit cramped for everyone. We talked about doing something to raise money for Addenbrooke’s, but me and my sister said we would have to raise money every year if we were going to do anywhere near what they did for Jake.
“So that’s what we are going to do. Jake was 18 when he died and he was taking his first professional steps into the world. And that’s what these young bands are doing.”
Local band and and close friends The Scruff will be headlining the event that is taking place at The Green Man in Lidlington on Saturday from 11am.
Support bands will include The Jebs, The Filthy Visuals, LoveGun, and The Delinquents, with a number of DJs.
It will go on till late with an acoustic midnight sessions playing. Tickets are £15.
They are available from Bootsies Nursery,The Lemon Larder and on the door.
