Nantwich based Watts Commercial Finance, alongside local fundraiser Peter McCleave from www.10000donors.com, are supporting an online music festival in aid of Mid Cheshire Foodbank.

On 17th July 2020 at 19:00 @acousticpostcards will be hosting their event live via Facebook to raise vital funds for those who are struggling to provide food for their families following the Coronavirus outbreak.

The online event showcases five of the very talented musicians from the new Cheshire based acoustic musician collective - Acoustic Postcards – who will be performing special live-streamed acoustic sets from their home studios live on Facebook.

Phil Gray, Managing Director of Watts Commercial Finance says “These are difficult times for many people and I am delighted to support our local Foodbank when they need it most. I am also delighted to support Lee Gordon and his fantastic collective of musicians who are pulling together to make a difference.” Cllr Nathan Pardoe - a volunteer with Mid Cheshire Foodbank - added: "Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had twice as many people to feed and we need your support now more than ever. As the economic impact of Covid-19 accelerates more people will have to turn to foodbanks. Thanks so much to Acoustic Postcards for organising this fantastic event and supporting Mid Cheshire Foodbank."
