A festival held in memory of a soul music fan has raised £7,000 for a Barnet charity.

The money, raised as a tribute to Andy Weekes, who died of cancer in 2006, aged 43, will go to Cherry Lodge Cancer Care, in Union Street, a charity that aims to improve the lives of those with cancer, their carers and families.

Summer Soulstice 2, organised by friends of Mr Weekes, was held on Saturday at the Old Elizabethans Sports Ground, on Gypsy Corner, Mays Lane, Barnet.

It featured performances from DJs Nicky Holloway, Dr Bob Jones, Mark Webster and Ash Selector, and R n' B singer Erica Iji.

Mr Weekes got to know many of the DJs performing at the festival by selling T-shirts at their gigs.

Jamie Topham, one of the festival organisers, said: "Our heartfelt thanks go out to all who supported us on the day, including all the DJs, sound crew, bar staff, volunteers and everybody who turned up to party throughout the day.

"The sound was so good, we were even heard by the Big Brother house in Borehamwood just a couple of miles away, with the housemates mentioning they could hear loud music in the distance."
