Owners raise more than £5,000 for vital cancer charity

Our wonderful caravan owners have pulled together to raise more than £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support at a charity fun day.

 

From a fundraising walk around the park to party dances and a huge raffle with prizes that included a 43in TV and a hamper filled with wine and food, our owners joined staff and park guests to raise as much as possible to help people with cancer.

 

The family charity event was hosted by entertainer Rob Taylor and organiser Lynn Higgi and included big family activities to a musical backdrop of catchy tunes and classic hits.

 

The Bunn Leisure Owners’ fundraising drive for Macmillan, originally organised by Abby Cotton, has been running for five seasons and has raised over £50,000 to date.

 

Lynn said: “It was a really fun day and raised an amazing £5,160. There was plenty of tea and cake to keep everyone going, and lots of fun things took place throughout the day.

 

“Brian Savage organised a 300-acre park walk that saw almost 100 people take part and we had owners hopping on the Bunn Leisure curtesy buses with collection buckets. There was a huge raffle, ran by Georgina Hillier, with lots of brilliant prizes, and there were party games, face painting, glitter tattoos, a tombola and, of course, traditional party dances with the TeamStar Entertainers.

 

“We have a brilliant team, and we all work together to raise money for this marvellous cause that is close to so many people’s hearts.”

 

The fundraising team is made up of around 20 caravan owners, helped along by the hundreds of holiday makers who get involved with the fundraising activities during their stay.

 

Other fundraising events planned this year include a Staff vs Owners Charity football match on Saturday July 14 and a raft race in the August Summer Holidays.
