Tickets are now on sale for a community extravaganza which is being hosted in memory of a former Moorlands young man.

Lewfest, a charity festival event is taking place on Saturday, August 20, at Rue Hill Caravan Park, Cauldon Lowe. It is being hosted in memory of Lewis McFarlin who sadly passed away in 2020.

Sharon Rathbone is one of the team behind organising Lewfest.

She explained: “Lewis died in a traumatic accident at work, back in January 2020.

Since then we have done two charity football events, which one was in June where Lewis’ football team Cheadle Rovers played against some of Lewis’ Stoke City legends example Carl Dickinson, Glenn Whelan, and Danny Pugh.

We held the first Lewfest Festival last year, where we raised money for Prostate Cancer and The Dove Service which helped Lewis’ family through this very sad time.

We want Lewis’ memory to continue so we are doing another Lewfest this year, which will be held on August 20 at Rue Hill Caravan Park, Cauldon Lowe.

Gates will open at noon and there will be transport available to and from this event which people will be able to find the details on our Facebook page or our Instagram @thelewismcfarlinfoundation.

People can purchase tickets for Lewfest from https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/lewfest or at Vogue Hairdressers, Oakley’s Farm or Hollies Bouquet.”

Sharon added: “We are looking for any people who would like to sponsor this event or to donate auction prizes.

This year there will be two stages with 15 music acts.

We have got lots of stalls, bars, kids activities, bouncy castles, fair rides, a live auction and much more.”

Sharon explained further how she got involved in helping with Lewfest: “My son was a very good friend of Lewis, they played football together, went the Stoke home and away matches together etc.

When this happened, Lewis’ mum Leah wanted to do something in his memory and it has gone from there really.

Lewis’ friends and a few of the lads mum’s – that’s were I come in – had a meeting and set up Lewfest.

I feel that it really helps Leah and the family and also Lewis’ friends.

There is such a special place for Lewis in everyone’s heart who knew him.”

Lewis’ mum, Leah told the Times & Echo: “LewFest is going to be bigger and better this year with lots of music.

We absolutely loved hosting last year and learnt a lot on how we could improve our set up for this year.

We have lots of children’s activities including pony rides, fair rides, face painting and a real princess will be entertaining once again etc.

It should be a really great fun day whilst we raise money for a fantastic local charity.

The Dove Service which is a local bereavement service which really helped me through the worst time.

We are also now known as The Lewis McFarlin Foundation and have recently raised just over £4,000 at the Lewis McFarlin Memorial Match, which was held at Thorley Drive with lots of Lew’s friends coming together and many playing plus the many ex pro Stoke players playing in Lew’s memory.

It was such an amazing day. Lew would have been absolutely blown away by all of this.”
