FALCONRY, puppet shows, live music and water walkers are some of the activities on offer tomorrow at a park’s fundraiser for ill children.

Puxton Park, in Hewish, has linked up with the Children Hospice South West (CHSW) Charlton Farm base to raise cash for terminally ill youngsters.

The one-day extravaganza at the park in Cowslip Lane, Hewish, will see a live performance from musician Mark Venus, puppet shows, face painting and falconry displays.

Park owner Alistair Mead has promised to match the funds raised on the day with an equal donation.

He said: “Children’s Hospice South West is our dedicated charity and we are thrilled to be supporting them with this fundraising day to bring awareness to this worthwhile cause.

“We hope this fundraising day will be well supported by the local community and will raise vital funds for Charlton Farm, Wraxall, so it can continue to care for terminally ill youngsters and their families.”
