The traditional event has won £350 as part of Kumho Tyres’ ‘Cash for Causes’ campaign.

The international company pledged to make a difference by donating money to deserving causes.

Since winning the larger share of the cash after a vote, the festival intends to put the money towards new costumes and equipment.
