Parklife Festival raises over £75,000 for local charities

Manchester’s Parklife Festival has announced that it has raised more than £75,000 for local charities. The two day festival, which included Frank Ocean and Run The Jewels on the line up, made £30,000 last year, meaning that it has increased its charity donation by more than double this year.

Beneficiaries of this total include the Parklife Community Trust Fund which aims to nurture projects within the local neighbourhood, with a total of £44,141 raised. The SuperJosh Brain Tumour Charity – which festival director Sacha Lord is a patron for – raised an impressive £26,023 via donations from festival goers and bar staff. An additional £5,000 accounts for festival tickets that were donated to various charities for raffles and auctions.
