JOBEFEST 2014 was a huge success over the weekend of the June 28 and 29 in Ross on Wye, all to raise money for Birmingham Children's Hospital and Megan Baker House.

Jobe Taylor-Davies suffered a serious brain injury in September 2012 and received treatment at the hospital and is now receiving conductive education at Megan Baker house.

The Saturday evening consisted of a mini music festival with local bands the BBC and Andy Margett followed by the UK's best party band Rick Parfitt Jr band.

The Sunday morning started a little quietly following on from the night before - but by lunch time all the rafts were launched in the river for a 3.5-mile pageant of fun and colour and a huge reception waiting at the finish line to see everyone home.

With family frolics on the river bank, it made for a truly spectacular weekend for all. Money raised will be announced on www.facebook.com/BabyJobesProgress
