Ross Country Music Festival 2009 was a roaring success despite the awful weather on the Saturday and as a result, St. Michael's Hospice is £6,000 better off. On Saturday evening at Ross Country Music Club's monthly event at the Larruperz Centre, Annie Ransome, Events Assistant for St. Michael's was delighted to be presented with two cheques.

The first cheque, to the value of £960 was raised by the raffle alone and was presented by St. Michael's support worker, Cynthia Brain. The second cheque represented the profits of the festival, amounting to £5,040. This is an absolutely staggering result and all thanks to the hard work of the organizers of Ross Country Music Festival and the generosity of all those attending this great annual event.

Congratulations go to Colin and Ann Gray, Bonnie and Clive Beard, Cynthia Brain, everybody who helped in the organization of the event and all who helped to raise this marvellous boost for this wonderful charity.

Annie thanked everybody for their extremely generous gift, and said that it is events like the festival that go a long way to keeping St. Michael's running.
