Family Fun Day brings in £16,000

Our Family Fun Day yesterday brought in an amazing number of people from all over the country. All coming to enjoy Fordhall and all it has to offer. It was also a great opportunity to meet and greet all of our supporters. Sophie and Ben did a fantastic job with organising the event. It not only provided an enjoyable event for people but it also served to raise funds for our fight. We were able to raise an amazing £16,000 towards the purchase of Fordhall Farm by the community.

We could not believe how far people had travelled simply to visit Fordhall – it was breathtaking. So many from Sussex, Suffolk, Essex, andYorkshire areas. We could not have asked for more.

We must pass on to a big thank you to all the volunteers who helped over the weekend. We could not have done it without them. Also thanks to Sign and Poster in Shrewsbury, who sponsored our banners, to Riverside Press in Market Drayton who sponsored our flyers (and assisted with our Newsletters), to Local Feast in Oswestry for Sponsorship of the stalls, and to Awards for All (from the National Lottery) for all their help with overheads for the event.
