June 2015 saw our first ‘Garden Party’ specifically designed to raise funds for the Winstons Wish charity. Using the title of Accordion Magic we ran the event in our back garden which backs onto the Trent & Mersey canal in Middlewich. The past three years events were part of the events around the Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (FAB). We would like to thank all the artists and orchestra’s that have donated their time and talent to help out this fabulous charity over the past two years. Pictured below are some of the highlights from our Accordion Magic FAB shows. We are currently looking for artists to donate their time and playing skills for the next FAB event, please contact us if you can help!
Winston’s Wish is an award-winning charity which supports bereaved children and young people. Founded in 1992, it was originally established to meet the needs of bereaved children in Gloucestershire (UK). Since then, it has helped many thousands of children and families come to terms with what has happened and to learn to live with their loss. Whilst a specific range of services is still available for families in Gloucestershire, Winston’s Wish now offers support to bereaved children and young people throughout the UK.
Our attempts to raise monies for the Winston’s Wish Charity currently consist of raffles at our festivals and events. We would like to thank all those that donated prizes, bought tickets or given donations for Winston’s Wish. So far we have raised over £13,000 If you would like to make a donation then it can be sent care of Carillon Studios or you can contact Winston’s Wish directly. The Winston’s Wish Web Site has bundles of useful information and contact details. Please visit it!
