Hello Infest friends,
We are proud to confirm that one of our selected charities for this year’s event will be:
Mind, the mental health charity.
Mind are committed to making sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone. For over 60 years they’ve been working to improve the lives of people experiencing mental health problems. Through public campaigns, government lobbying and more than 140 local branches in the community, they’ve touched millions of lives. If you want to read more about their invaluable work, please look here. We will be supporting Mind by collecting donations for them during Infest 2017.
We have chosen to support Mind in memory of our much loved and sadly missed friend and compere, Tails.
Mind was chosen by Tails’ parents to commemorate their son and as such we are honoured to support them in this choice.
In addition to the charity collection, we’ll be celebrating Tails’ life and the amazing impact he had on so many of us at Infest including customers, crew and artists alike over the years. More news on the planned activities taking place during Infest 2017 will follow in the coming weeks.
…only TEN weeks to go until Infest 2017!
In the mean time a friend of infest named Simon Barber whom many of you will know, has decided to take part in the Edinburgh IRONMAN Triathlon, in aid of Mind and in memory of Tails. If you’d like to sponsor Simon on his SUPERHUMAN challenge, please go to his JustGiving page here. For those who don’t already know the gruelling challenge ahead of him, you can read more about IRONMAN here.
See you all in TEN WEEKS!
