Popular Winslow band The Cantells are playing in Great Horwood Village Hall on Saturday, February 6, to raise money for a children’s charity.

Little Horwood woman Tara Garritt is joining Let’s Trek For Children in India in October for Action Medical Research.

This is the second charity trek for Tara, whose last adventure took her from the dead sea to Petra in Jordan last year, raising nearly £6,000.

Tara, aged 43, said: “Once I had the bug, I came home determined to reach £10,000 for this amazing charity, and I hope through events like this, I can reach my target.”

Tara will walk from Dharamsala, the spiritual home of the Dalai Lama, through spectacular mountain landscapes, finishing the challenge at Laka Got, 3,550m above sea level.

Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs since 1952, including polio vaccines, ultrasound in pregnancy and testing the rubella vaccine.

It is currently funding research into meningitis, Down’s syndrome, epilepsy and premature birth.

Tickets for the gig are available from The Crown in Great Horwood. To sponsor Tara, visit
