A fantastic afternoon was had by over 700 attendees, who turned out on one of the hottest days of the year so far to enjoy a range of activities in the hospice’s grounds. As the main event sponsors, we at Gates took two Ford vehicles with us – the Ford Fiesta and the Ford EcoSport – to enable visitors to explore them up close. But it wasn’t all business: we also brought with us an inflatable ‘Speedball’ football game for big and little kids alike to enjoy, as well as racing simulator seats. Visitors could hop into these and experience the thrill of the racetrack, regardless of their age.
Other attractions at the festival included a mini zoo, live music and an enchanted forest trail. There were, of course, plenty of refreshments available too, including barbecue food and hot and cold drinks.
Over the course of the afternoon, Haven House raised an incredible £14,000, which will be used to fund its vital services for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. We are delighted to have been a part of the event and look forward to supporting this worthy cause again soon.
