Thousands raised Thousands raised

A MUSIC festival held at a Stairfoot pub has raised over £12,000 for three local charities.

Keelfest, held at the Keel Inn, smashed the previous year's record of £8,249,

They handed over £12,578.75 to Barnsley Hospice, with the rest being distributed to Darcy's Days, to raise money for a little girl with an inoperable brain tumour, and Team Ebonie, for another little girl, Ebonie Webb, who is also battling a brain tumour.

Shane Bristow, from the Keelfest committee, said: "We're all amazed at the result, never in our wildest dreams would we think that we could top last year's total.

"But we did and it's all thanks to the lovely people of Barnsley who turned out to make Keelfest 2013 one of the best days of the year."
