Formby Festival is proud to be a not-for-profit event, our aim is simple; to bring the community together for an action packed weekend …but what happens to the profits?
Each year we choose a few nominated charities to donate a portion of profits to, with the rest directly going back into the fund for the following year.
We’re proud to be supporting the following charities this year:
We Love Manchester Emergency Fund
The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund will support people who have been injured or bereaved by the devastating Manchester Attack. The donations will help alleviate suffering and ensure that victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties.
Variety: The Children’s Charity
All over the UK there are children who have to cope with sickness, disability or disadvantage. It’s tough. Really tough. Variety provide practical, tangible help that makes an immediate difference to those children and their families. Each year they take tens of thousands of children on great days out through their Great Days Out Programme.
They help fund children’s hospitals and hospices, creating environments that are more welcoming and reassuring. Children cared for at home are given specialist equipment to alleviate the symptoms of chronic conditions, improve their everyday care and help reduce stress for both children and parents.
Youth clubs receive their funding for equipment, enabling them to offer more facilities, attracting vulnerable young people and keeping them off the street.
