AGWA De Bolivia to support the Viola Beach and Craig Tarry Memorial Fund

This summer AGWA De Bolivia will be supporting the Viola Beach and Craig Tarry Memorial Fund.

Like many, we were deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Viola Beach and their manager Craig Tarry this year. Unknown to us, the guys were big AGWA fans and we have since been contacted by bars and shops from their hometown of Warrington to help honour these inspiring young men and talented artists with the AGWA-inspired ‘Viola Beach Tea Cocktail’.

Family and friends of the boys have set up The Viola Beach and Craig Tarry Memorial Fund which aims to raise money in order to build a small memorial in honour of the band and their manager in Warrington town centre.   The hope isto create an ongoing legacy for the guys with a bursary that represents what the band stood for; following your dreams.

All profits from sales of the Viola Beach Tea will be donated straight to the fund and AGWA de Bolivia will also be donating all profits from online sales of AGWA to the fund this Summer.

The bursary will support aspiring musicians from Warrington and the North West to achieve their own musical dreams.
