Cazfest 2014

A message from Johnny & Lesley

We would like to express our enormous appreciation and thanks for the support given to Cazfest by the people of Bishop’s Stortford and the surrounding areas as well as the 140 plus volunteers who gave up their time and worked tirelessly on the day ensuring everybody enjoyed themselves.

Lesley & Johnny - Caroline's parents

We were extremely fortunate with the weather this year which only added to the party atmosphere and everyone we talked to seemed to be having a fantastic time!

The aims and objectives of Cazfest are now well established in the town as we seek to take our message to a wider audience. If anyone or any business would like to assist the charity please contact and we would be delighted to welcome you on board.

We hope you all enjoyed the day and look forward to welcoming you back again in 2015!

What is it?

Cazfest is an all day summer music event that was first held in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire in 2009 with local and popular bands, alongside a wide range of other entertainment, all in memory of Caroline Johnstone.

Caroline Johnstone - Fairy CazCaroline (Caz) was a 17 year old student of The Bishop's Stortford High School studying for her “A” levels who had hoped to go to Newcastle University to study English Language.

On June 6th 2008, while with friends at a night club, she collapsed and, despite the prompt attendance of the medical services, she was never able to regain consciousness.

She died peacefully on June 12th 2008.

Heart FM at Cazfest 2014

All net proceeds from Cazfest go towards raising awareness of heart risk in young people and to helping us finance heart screening for sixth form students in Hertfordshire and Essex.

As Cazfest gathers momentum, we are looking to expand our funding for heart screening into East London and beyond. Our hope is that we can raise awareness of heart risk in young people to the point where heart screening is automatically provided to all young people across the country.

We are seeking £35,000 to ensure our annual charity festival, Cazfest, goes ahead 11th July 2015.

Whether you are a small or large business, a member of the local community or an avid supporter of our cause, please give as much or as little as you can afford - every penny counts!

All profits from the event are used to finance screening at schools in Hertfordshire and Essex and to raise awareness of heart conditions in young people.

In return for your donations, we are offering a number of "perks" from Platinum, Gold, Silver & Bronze packages for business sponsors who want to be identified with this worthy cause, to T-shirts, tickets and much more for those who want to attend the event and support the charity.
