Infest 2015 – Charity Support

Those who have attended infest before know that we like to support a number of charities!

We organise charity fund rasing collections throughout the event, including a huge raffle, with donations from artists and sponsors, as well as other fun activities, and donations from our guest list attendees.

Last year we collected £3,444 for our chosen charities: Marie Curie, Guide Dogs and Help for Heroes, in memory of Paul B.

This year we will have a guide dog attending the show, who will be helping an Infest fan:

“My guide dog is JJ. I have had him a year and a half, he is just over 3 years old now. He is a jet black cross between a golden and a flat coat retriever. He has made a huge difference to my life and may well have saved it a few times already.

I was born with type 2 Ushers Syndrome. This means I was born with a severe hearing loss and I wear hearing aids in both ears. During my teenage years my eyesight started to deteriorate with a condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa. I now have tunnel vision, a bit like looking through a pinhole camera, and my night vision is really poor too.

Guide dogs are life changing. Guide Dogs is a UK charity that receives no government funding. It costs around £50,000 to fund and care for a guide dog over it’s life, and there are aroud 4,800 guide dog owners in the UK. This is why public donations are so important.

JJ will be with me throughout this year’s Infest Festival. Please come and say hello.

– John E Smoke”
