Live Music, and fun for all the family

This years event will be held on
16th and 17th September 2022



This event is organised by SHOCK Sleaford.

Our aim is to provide defibrillators to Sleaford and surrounding villages with the intention to try and get a defibrillator within 500m of every house within the towns and villages.

A huge thanks to everyone who sponsored, attended and volunteered at last year’s event. If you were a part of it you should be very proud.

We are delighted to announce nearly £15,000 was raised during the two days. Without the volunteers, sponsors and generosity of suppliers this would not be possible.

Three key projects have been agreed to receive part of this money to allow then to continue. Residual funds remain available for local groups to write and request assistance.
– SHOCK Sleaford defibrillator campaign, installing and managing as many public-accessible defibrillators in and around Sleaford
– Sleaford Community Minibus, managed and funded by Sleaford & District Round Table, providing subsidised travel for local groups and clubs
– 3rd Sleaford Scout Group, part of the Scouting Association, a fantastic youth group based in the town
