A celebration of the life of much-loved young woman will take place next week - as her family looks to raise £30k by her 30th birthday.

Lulu Rocks will return to Salwayash next weekend and promises to be bigger and better than ever before as it marks a special milestone.

Lulu Covey would have celebrated her 30th birthday this year.

Tragically, she was killed in a car crash in 2015, and her family has been determined to raise a phenomenal amount of money for good causes in her memory.

Remarkably, so far, they have raised £26,000 for good causes through Lulu Rocks - and look set to reach their of raising £30,000 this year.

Lulu’s mum, Glenys Marsh, started the event in 2016 and it has been a success ever since.

This year’s acts include The Leggomen, Jack Humphries, Stevie and the Masquerades, Patrick Chiverton and The Guitarist on Wheels.

Guests can enjoy live music along with cocktails from the bar and food will also be served.

Previous events raised £7,000 in 2016, £11,700 in 2017 and £7,300 in 2018.

Just before Christmas, Glenys donated a cheque for £5,000 to Mountjoy School, Beaminster, which enabled the school to install outdoor football and table tennis tables for pupils to use.

Lulu Rocks has chosen to support Mountjoy, which caters for up to 80 pupils aged between two and 19 with a range of complex needs, again this year.

It has also selected Julia’s House, a children’s hospice which provides practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition.

There are still tickets left for Lulu Rocks 2019, which takes place at Salwayash village hall from 4pm on Saturday, July 20.

Tickets cost £15 and are available from Glenys at gem.57@btinternet.com or by calling 07795124082.
