Every year G-Festival attracts thousands of people all contributing to a top charity which helps 'life changing initiatives' in Salford and beyond.

This year's seventh Festival, which takes place at Ellesmere Sports Club in Worsley tomorrow, features over a dozen acts, including local singer songwriter Jess Kemp, who releases her new single next month, four-piece Manchester indie band Blank Cheque, Linda Jennings (The Voice) and Aeron Smith (X-Factor), plus The Ascent of Oasis and The Beatles For Sale.

The music happens across two stages, and there's also a jazz lounge, fairground and soft play zone. It's all for a great cause, the charity Georgia's Children of the World, which has helped to raise over 200,000 to help children in the North West and internationally...

These have included loads of projects, including Georgia's House 5 in Salford (in partnership with The Life Centre on Langworthy Road), the School Uniform Project (hundreds of free school uniforms for Salford and Manchester kids) and breakfast clubs in Salford, plus water wells in Cambodia, food parcels for children in Romania and help for children who have lost a parent.

G-Fest was originally set up by former punk band frontman, Steve Murray from Fast Cars, in memory of his daughter Georgia... "There's amazing talent lined-up for 2018, with the funds we raise going to help kids in Manchester and around the world" he says "We're stepping things up another level and aiming to break the quarter of million fundraising mark this year."
 
One of the children the event has helped is five-year-old Heidi-Lou Decieco from Swinton, who has cerebral palsy. Following a year of life-changing physiotherapy sessions funded by the charity, the family has realised their dream of helping Heidi-Lou to sit up independently for the first time in her life.
 
"The charity has been truly amazing" says Heidi-Lou's mum, Kate Decieco "Doctors had told us it was unlikely Heidi-Lou would be able to sit, but over the past year the weekly physio sessions funded by the Georgia's Children charity has meant she's been able to achieve this."
 
Steve adds: "Heidi-Lou is a total star and we're delighted to have been able to help her and her family. Her progress over recent months shows that miracles really can happen when a community pulls together."

At G-Fest, 18-year-old Jennifer Rice from Worsley is also set to perform Carry Me Home, a song written by Steve in memory of Georgia. It looks set to be an amazing day that deserves all the support it can get...

WORKPLACE PARKING LEVY ONE OF THE OPTIONS AS GREATER MANCHESTER CONSIDERS CLEAN AIR ZONES

GMCA TRIES TO AVOID VEHICLE CHARGES FOR CLEAN AIR ZONES

Today, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) is meeting to discuss options for reducing air pollution in the region. The Government has identified charge based Clean Air Zones as the benchmark, and unless the GMCA can come up with an alternative plan to reduce emissions quickly, charging polluting vehicles will be on the cards. A 'workplace parking levy' is one of the options.

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CANT GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAULS CHURCH IN KERSAL

Star date: 14th August 2018

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
