BEER'S Music 4 Life event which takes place this month is sure to go out with a bang.
A spectacular fireworks display will finish the twelve-hour music event in aid of FORCE and The Children's Hospice South West.
Several other local charities, including NEDPSA a local prostate Awareness and Support Group, are also to benefit as members will be raising funds on the day.
Beer Primary School demonstrated their skipping talent at last year's fundraiser but this year the children will be amazing revellers with their drumming skills as they accompany the start of The Axe Valley Runners Midsummer Dream Run just after noon.
This is the second Music 4 Life Event to take place in the village and Steve and Mandy Graham, who organised everything musical last year, have once again arranged an exciting and varied line-up. All acts will be giving their time free of charge to help the cause.
Last year the village raised over £5,300 for cancer and other local charities but organiser Annie Boalch is hoping to top this amount.
She said: "With cancer affecting so many of our lives, folks dedicate so much time and effort to support this charity event, hoping that their contribution will not only help towards investigating the causes and more importantly a cure, but also support for those who suffer.
"Come the fireworks it will be a time to reflect on memories and reasons for which we have come together, through cancer, remembering those lost and those survivors, our friends.
"This event would not be possible without the generous sponsorship and support of numerous businesses; social groups, especially Beer Albion FC and the help of many private individuals. Thank you to everyone for their continued support."
The fundraiser will take place on Saturday, June 20 from 12noon-12am on Beer Football field.
