IT was a day to celebrate for the organisers of one of the town’s biggest music festivals as they smashed more than one target.

Beanfest saw a record number of revellers and their overall target of £25,000 raised for charity overtaken.

Around 4,000 music lovers attended at Roundwood Farm in Rawmarsh for the all-day family fun festival on Saturday, making it the biggest crowd in the event’s eight-year history.

The total amount raised is still being sorted but it will be over the £3,000 needed to reach the joint £25,000 target for Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids Appeal and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
