The second annual LibFest, a festival to commemorate the life of Liberty Baker, raised a phenomenal £25,500 split between three charities including Thames Valley Air Ambulance.

Dubbed “a special day for a special person”, LibFest 2016 saw 5,000 people attend despite the threat of the British weather ruining the fun.

Liberty Baker died in 2014 when a car mounted the pavement and hit the teenager on her walk to school. The driver had been texting whilst behind the wheel.

The parents of Liberty, Paul and Maureen Baker have been determined to celebrate the life of their daughter despite the tragedy that devastated the family. In Autumn 2014 the concept of LibFest was born to honour music-loving Liberty.

This year’s festival saw live bands being joined by a silent disco, food stalls, face painting and children’s entertainment.

After presenting us with an incredible cheque of £8,500 the organisers commented on Facebook saying, “It was an honour to raise money for these three truly amazing charities (See Saw, CHART UK and Thames Valley Air Ambulance). The work they do is fantastic and it’s great to know that the money raised will be going to such great use. Thanks to every single person or company who made this happen.”

We want to thank all our supporters involved in Lib Fest, it is a truly amazing event with a powerful message.
