We are blown away and so very grateful to the family of local John Nixon (known to everyone as Joe) who have donated £1,295 to the project. Joe sadly passed away on the 21st September, and the village came together for a monumental send-off involving stories of his life, shared grief and live music to celebrate his life as a festival and gig lover. The family chose Higher Ground as their local cause to receive the proceeds of this event and donations from family and friends and we are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity.
I will remember Joe as a lover of nature, friend to all and always last on the dancefloor. We are hoping to be able to plant a tree all permitting on the site in his memory.
