A massive ‘thank you’ to our 2017 sponsors:

Anderson Group

Anderson Logo

Anderson Group are the principal sponsor for Festival Day.

The quarry at Coldhams Lane, on the north east of Cambridge, was opened in 1900 to provide materials, for construction works. When quarrying ended in 1956 it was used as a waste disposal tip. Landfill on half the site ended in the 1980s, and the remaining pits were filled with water. Our bright new scheme finds new possibilities for this much neglected land.

By working with the local council, businesses and residents, we are formulating a proposal that relocates non-conforming industrial business, improves local amenities and infrastructure, and gives the community access to beautiful lakes adjacent to the Tins Link and Cherry Hinton Brook that nobody really knows exist.

The Big Lottery Fund

hi_big_e_lrg_blue-2We are delighted that the Festival is Lottery funded this year! The Big Lottery Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK. It puts people in the lead to improve their lives and communities, often through small, local projects. It is responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by National Lottery players for good causes. Every year it invests over £650 million and awards around 12,000 grants across the UK for health, education, environment and charitable purposes. Since June 2004 it has awarded over £8 billion to projects that change the lives of millions of people.

Tesco Bags of Help

RAG puts on some of the biggest events in Cambridge and raises heaps of money for charity!

At the start of each year, RAG selects ten local, national and international charities to support with the money raised from their events. The majority of RAG’s core fundraising is divided between these charities at the end of June. This includes money raised from Jailbreak, Blind Date and LOST among other events and initiatives.

The 10 charities which RAG supported in 2013-14 each received a cheque for £7,000. This is more than ever before and a £500 increase per charity on the previous year!

In addition, a donation of £9,600 was last year made to the Cambridge Council for Voluntary Services and a number of its local member organisations – including the Cherry Hinton Festival.
