Around the World In a Day fun time
PUBLISHED: 15:00 08 June 2013
A TRADITIONAL village fete will be held this month to raise money for a children's charity.
DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Frost Hill, Congresbury will host an Around The World In A Day initiative, a fundraising event staged across hotels in Europe.
The aim is to collectively rack up the equivalent distance of the Earth’s circumference in games and events.
The fun day on June 16 will also raise money for Springboard Opportunity Group, a charity in Nailsea which supports North Somerset children with additional needs from birth to five years old, and helps their families.
Cadbury House general manager Colin Badcock said: “It’s fantastic to put on an event like this. Hopefully we will raise a good amount that will help fund this brilliant charity.”
Joanne Harris, charity manager at Springboard added: “We were started by a small group of local parents in 1986 who desperately needed help with their very young children.
“Since our early days we have worked with just over 1000 children and their families and we now provide a vital service for over 90 children every week.
“We’re delighted and very grateful that Cadbury House is holding this event to raise funds for our charity and hope the people of North Somerset can pop along to enjoy the day.”
The event is taking place from 11am on June 16 and entry will be free.
