Silsden’s Summer Jam music festival will raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Organisers of the August bank holiday event this week announced the charity will be its main beneficiary.

Teenage Cancer Trust is dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people aged 13 to 24, who are diagnosed with cancer.

It has massive support across the music industry, with ambassadors including Oasis stars Noel and Liam Gallagher and former The Jam frontman Paul Weller.

Bruce Foxton, another member of 1980s Mod legends The Jam, is headlining the festival with his own band, From The Jam.

Summer Jam co-organiser John Beaumont said raising as much money as possible was one of the main aims of the festival.

He added: “Teenage Cancer Trust is an amazing charity, which is close to the hearts of young people and, subsequently, to everyone in the music industry, in particular the Mod community, so it just seemed to us to be the obvious choice.”

The Summer Jam will take place at Riverside Fields in Silsden from August 22 to 24. Visit dirtyboyin.com or call 07581 498817 to book tickets.
