Up to 4000 people flocked to our special event held at Eaton Vale Activity Centre in Norwich at the weekend, where they were able to take part in a multitude of adventurous activities, such as Abseiling, Canoeing, High Ropes, Archery, & Axe Throwing! There were many other activities for smaller children too, including bouncy castles, low ropes, go karts, soft play & grass sledging. There were also stalls for people to peruse and displays in a ring, ranging from marching bands to martial arts and touch rugby demonstrations. All three emergencies services brought down vehicles for the day and there was even a driving school where children as young as 10 could try driving a full size car!
The day was held on Sunday 10th September, on what would have been Finnbar’s 7th birthday.
Tristan Cork, Finnbar’s Father and organiser of the event said “The day was an astonishing success. We worked incredibly hard to put on something really special to remember Finnbar on his birthday. He would have been in his element at a day like today and I hope he would be proud of what we’ve achieved”
Tristan added “We are delighted by the number of people that turned out to support our charity and we’d like to thank every one of our volunteers, along with the Eaton Vale staff, performers and all the people and business that donated items for the day”.
The total amount raised was £10200. The money will be used to help the charity with it’s aims, which include helping local families affected by the diagnosis and funding research, as well as developing improved services locally.
