Live music festival Knipfest has raised £16,000 for good causes this year.

Organisers of the festival, held in June, were able to donate £7,000 to Cancer Research, £3,500 to St Barnabas

Hospice, £3,500 to Dove Hospice and £2,000 to Belvoir Cricket Club.

The festival, which has taken place over the last six years, attracted more than 1,000 people this year.

The venue at Belvoir Cricket club has been transformed recently with the landscaping of two lakes, allowing for an impressive view of Belvoir Castle and it’s surrounding area.

The bands performed free of charge, and all of the helpers and volunteers involved also gave their services free of charge.

Knipfest is planned to return next year on June 25.
