A MUSIC festival has raised more than £600 for an appeal to help a seriously ill youngster.

Rock the Garden at the Lord Burghley, in Stamford, attracted 400 people on Saturday.

Event organiser Steve McGurk is delighted to have raised £618.17 for the Jamie Andrews appeal.

Jamie suffers from the rare Diamond Blackfan Anaemia, a condition which prevents his body from producing red blood cells properly.

His parents Sarah Allen and Dan Andrews, of Folksworth, near Stilton, are raising £8,000 to have IVF treatment to create a child who will be able to save Jamie’s life.

Four bands and six DJs, including Mr McGurk, performed during the day.

Revellers also enjoyed a barbecue, with food donated by Waitrose and Askers bakery, in Stamford.

Mr McGurk, 25, of Riverside Place, Stamford, said: “It was really good and the day came together.

“There was a really good atmosphere.”
