A FESTIVAL which will see the likes of Wilko Johnson, 10cc, Rolf Harris and the Waterboys take to the stage has chosen to support a Fareham-based charity.

The organisers of the Wickham Festival, which takes place from Thursday, August 1 until Sunday, August 4, have chosen to support Two Saints.

Two Saints helps people who are homeless in Fareham and Gosport.

Two Saints staff have volunteered to run the merchandise stall this year, after doing so last year.

The charity will also provide litter-picking volunteers during and after the event.

Alice Hart, business development officer at Two Saints, attended the event as a volunteer last year and said: ‘The experience is brilliant.

‘People were really interested to learn about the work of Two Saints and we raised lots of money to help with our work with the homeless in Hampshire and surrounding areas.’
