The money was raised at the Knipfest music festival, which was staged at Kesteven Rugby Club. It was attended by over 1,200 people who saw seven bands perform.

The event is set to take place again next year on June 30 at the same venue. Knipfest committee members John Copley, Richard Hart, Greg Herbert, Phil Noon, and Johnnie Watchorn handed over the cheques.
