Have fun and raise money for a fantastic cause to boot
There’s a fun-packed day for a fantastic cause planned for 1 July, when East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH) hosts its annual gala day at Milton Hall. Running 11.30am to 5pm, the event features tasty food and drink, entertainment, stalls – and some very special guests.
Kids will love the face painting, archery and bouncy castles, not to mention the chance to meet Fitz and Will, the Cambridge Cats. Grown-ups, meanwhile, will enjoy the food and drink delights, including a stall from local boutique gin distillery Pinkster. There are also cream teas, a candy cart, cocktails and barbecue food to enjoy, plus crumbly scones with lashings of clotted cream from the Women’s Institute.
The grounds of Milton Hall will also be playing host to a range of craft and homeware stalls, classic cars and even a fire engine, plus live music from Arco Iris samba band.
Karen Newton, EACH Cambridgeshire Fundraising Manager, said: “We’ve got lots of great muscial and dance performances scheduled throughout the day and a variety of stalls to pick up treats. We rely on fundraising events to continue to offer the best support to families and provide specialist nursing care to children and young people with life-threatening conditions. It costs £5,300 a day to run our service across Cambridgeshire and the support from our local community never fails to surprise us. In advance I would like to thank our supporters and volunteers who are helping plan for a great day.”
