A fist­ful of fun at Wild West fair

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Ren­nie Grove Hos­pice Care will ben­e­fit from this year’s Sum­mer Fair and Craft Mar­ket at Mis­senden Abbey on Sun­day, July 12 July REN­NIE Grove Hos­pice Care is set to ben­e­fit from this year’s sum­mer fair and craft mar­ket at Mis­senden Abbey.

The pop­u­lar an­nual event has a Wild West flavour this year, with a live Wild West show, line danc­ing, rodeo bull and in­flat­a­bles, and an out­door saloon bar – as well as more than 60 craft stalls.

Di­rec­tor of fundrais­ing and mar­ket­ing at Ren­nie Grove, Gil­lian Bar­nett, said: “We’re de­lighted to have been cho­sen as Char­ity of the Year for this event. 2015 marks the 30th an­niver­sary of the found­ing char­i­ties that came to­gether to form Ren­nie Grove so it’s an im­por­tant mile­stone for us.

“It’s great to be in­volved with such a pop­u­lar event in the lo­cal com­mu­nity be­cause our ser­vices are for the lo­cal com­mu­nity and funded by the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

All Ren­nie Grove’s ser­vices are pro­vided at no cost to the pa­tient or their fam­ily – but the char­ity needs £6.7mil­lion ev­ery year to care for 3,000 pa­tients and fam­i­lies af­fected by can­cer and other life-lim­it­ing ill­ness.

Gil­lian added: “Gen­er­at­ing in­come to en­sure the needs of cur­rent and fu­ture pa­tients can be met is cru­cial.

“The sup­port and aware­ness gen­er­ated by events like Mis­senden Abbey’s sum­mer fair is in­valu­able.”

So grab a ‘fist­ful of dol­lars’ and head down to the Abbey this July for Wild West fun for all the fam­ily.

The sum­mer fair and craft mar­ket is at Mis­senden Abbey on Sun­day, July 12 from 11am till 4pm.
