TWO DJs have raised more than £4,300 for Halton Haven Hospice from a series of music nights.

Simon Maddock and Andy Kemp staged their third Old Skool Haven event at the Heath Business Park in October after the success of their first two fundraising nights.

Their first charity night in November 2016 raised £1,800, the second in April this year collected £1,350 and their most recent event raised almost £1,200.

But the DJs are keen to stress that they could not have done it alone.

Simon said: “It’s not just us raising this money. The Old Skool Haven nights are a success because of the people who support them, whether it’s the venue, the charity, the DJs, the guests or anyone else involved.”

The team at the Heath Business Park, in particular Anthony Stonebanks, were instrumental in the night’s success thanks to their hosting of the event.

“We want to say a big thank you to Anthony and the team at the Heath for their support,” said Simon.

“Also the photographer Chris Kennedy, Studio 3 for providing the equipment, and all the incredible DJs who really made the night special, Steve Patterson, Rick Graham, Rick Mainwaring, Leon Gittins, Philly Bray, Mike Maloney, Ste McGee, John Kelly and Dave Clough aka Davos.”

Chris Andrews, community fundraising manager at Halton Haven Hospice, said: “This is the third Old Skool Haven event and the third massive success.

"We really can’t thank Simon, Andy and everyone else involved enough.

"The nights have a great reputation and raise a fantastic amount for the hospice.

"It really is a testament to the hard work that goes into them. We are very lucky as a hospice to count Simon and Andy amongst our supporters.”
