A TWO-DAY music festival held on Anglesey has raised £4000 for Ysbyty Gwynedd's renal unit.

PhilFest was held at the Iorwerth Arms in Bryngwran on July 21 and 22.

The event was originally set-up to show support for dialysis patient Phil Blake, who volunteers at the community-owned pub.

A spokesperson who helped organise PhilFest said they wanted to help grant Phil's wish of giving back to Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital in Bangor.

"Phil does everything at the Iorwerth Arms for free and often says that his only wish would be to raise money for the dialysis unit at Ysbyty Gwynedd," The spokesperson said.

"He needs regular dialysis and has a machine at home as he has been treating himself for some years.

"We wanted to help make Phil's dream of donating money to Ysbyty Gwynedd a reality and we have done that now by raising £4000."

Musical acts such as Y Moniars, White Ether, Wil Tan and Sophie Jayne all performed at the sold-out event in Phil's honour.

Following a successful festival, organisers have confirmed that PhilFest will return next year.

"The festival will be held on Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20 in 2019," A spokesperson confirmed.

"We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported PhilFest 2018 and made it the massive success it has been.

"We look forward to returning next year with more music and more tickets."

£4000 has been collected so far, but organisers say donations are still being taken via JustGiving.
