U-Watt like to do their bit for charity, consequently we were honoured to have been part of Kazfest 2017 on 4th June at Broad Farm Holiday Park. Kazfest 2017 East Anglian Air Ambulance Charity Fundraiser was an event to celebrate Kaz’s life and raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. A few days after we played at the marvellous event I got a flyer from EAAA through my door asking for contributions. I’d just effectively donated my time to raise money for EAAA, so I emailed them to let them know why I would not be donating any cash. Here’s the lovely response I got:
Thank you for your email. I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you for supporting Kazfest. What a success it turned out to be! I was there myself for part of the day, and the sense unity and coming together of such varied communities was palpable – everyone certainly did a wonderful job of celebrating Kaz and all that she was. I hope to have a final total from the event soon, but I do know that it has, so far, raised in excess of £2500, which is well on the way towards covering the cost of a mission.
Thank you so much for being a part of it.
With very best wishes and our heartfelt thanks once again,
Norfolk Fundraising Officer
East Anglian Air Ambulance
We like to support charity whenever we are able, consequently we were very happy to be involved in this event. Kaz was a friend of some of us, her dad runs a music venue in Great Yarmouth at which we’ve played and the East Anglian Air Ambulance is a life-saver. Thank you all those who organised the event, participated and came along to make it a memorable day.
