Since then, Beth’s mum Helen Davies and sister Gemma have spearheaded a campaign that supports 18-25 year-olds receiving care at St Michael’s Hospice. To date, over £123,000 has been raised in Beth’s name.

Helen said, ‘The support for Beth’s Wish from the local community has been incredible. Everyone involved decided that we should keep the campaign going, so this year we have been busy organising a mini music festival to take place at the Hogs Head, Skenfrith near Abergavenny on Saturday 22nd August. We have an awesome line of acts including ‘Red Room Therapy’, whose following has grown since the release of their acclaimed debut album ‘All in the Mind’.’

Hogs Head Landlord Dale Jones stated, ‘I am really looking forward to this event. The Beth’s Wish team always put on professional and extremely enjoyable events. This year’s music festival looks set to the best so far.’

Helen said, ‘Almost everyone has been or will be touched by cancer at some point in their lives. Beth’s Wish is all about supporting young people. I can’t think of any better way of doing that than organising a celebratory event that is going to bring a lot of joy to hundreds of people.’

Paddy Nugent, Community Fundraising Manager at St Michael’s Hospice, said, ‘Beth’s Wish has already made a massive difference to the lives of young people. We are delighted that this event will be raising funds for St Michael’s Hospice and we would like to wish everyone a very special evening.’
