Having fun - and raising some cash

Evesham Editorial 11th Jul, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A RESIDENTS’ group in Evesham raised hundreds of pounds to boost a play area.

Despite fears of heavy rain, there was plenty of fun to be had when the Friends of Jubilee Gardens held their summer fete at the Coronation Street playground on Saturday, June 28.

The afternoon event, which saw a number of games played by guests both young and old, raised more than £600 in the group’s quest to get more play equipment on the site.

Activities on the day included sports games, a penalty shoot out, hook a duck, two bouncy castles, a tombola, raffle and many more.

Sue Norledge, chairman of the Friends of Jubilee Gardens, told the Observer the event was a big success.

“Considering the weather forecast and the fact it rained at the start, to have raised more than £600 was very satisfying, we did

very well.” she said.

Sue said the Friends of Jubilee Gardens also wished to thank a number of organisations for their support including Halfords, Wychavon District Council, Rooftop Housing Association, Moultons Hairdressers, Kevin Butchers and several more.
