HUNDREDS of supporters embraced the english summer weather to attend the first-ever Solihull Summer Fest in aid of Help Harry Help Others.

But the rain couldn’t dampen spirits for long as UB40, Five and Scouting For Girls among a long-list of stars took to the stage and had the crowd up on their feet.

All proceeds raised at the festival will go towards Help Harry Help Others charity – set up by Harry Moseley in 2009 after he was diagnosed with brain cancer – to help families affected by cancer.

The hours of hard work and preparation paid off as the festival proved to be success – with a tremendous £3000 raised through bracelet sales alone.

Harry’s mum, Georgie Moseley said: “The event epitomised all that Harry stood for- bringing families and the community together.

“It was truly amazing and will have a massive impact on the help HelpHarryHelpOthers offers cancer families.

“I’m truly humbled by the support of everyone involved in organising and attending The Summer Fest.”

Tudor Grange Park was packed out with face glitter stalls, food stalls and a X VIP area to add to to the festival feel.

The celebrations continued into the night as The Summer Fest After Party went off with a bang at the The Beech House pub.
