Organisers of Help Haiti CI, have identified the desire of Islanders to help the Haiti relief effort in some small way.

"What Help Haiti CI aims to do is to demonstrate solidarity and support to the people of Haiti, who are now having to deal with incomprehensible levels of personal trauma and rebuild their lives from scratch.

"As well as raising some much needed money to assist in the relief effort.

"We have been overwhelmed by the offers of support for this event, and I urge people to get involved and to attend what will be a tremendous fundraising event for such an important cause."

A website has been set up by organisers to keep people up to date with information on the event and other related events.

As well as the music there will be a "comprehensive schedule of entertainment" taking place throughout the day.
