Festive Volunteer Day!

Last week, our Bid Manager, Lucy took part in a ‘Volunteer Day’ and spent the afternoon at a local primary school’s annual Christmas Fair.  The aim was to raise around £4,000 to support the school’s ongoing playground development project.  This money will go towards redeveloping the outdoor provision at the school to provide lots of opportunities for creative and imaginative play. 

Lucy helped set up the fair and run a stall for the evening, Hunt the Golden Carrot – a firm favourite game with a constant queue of children wanting to win a prize.  Then came the clear up and a celebratory drink to finish!

Lucy commented, “Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the local community and give a little bit of time to a great cause.  It was so much fun to see the excitement on the children’s faces – they were happy to just take part, but their smiles were beaming when they found the golden carrot and won a prize!”.
