Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLEINPICTURES -

ACHARITY’S in­au­gral open day has been her­alded a suc­cess.

The Clare Foun­da­tion wel­comed close to 500 peo­ple to its grounds at the Clare Char­ity Cen­tre in Saun-der­ton for its first ever Open Day.

The event was a fun day out for the whole fam­ily and at­ten­dees had the chance to soak up the sun and un­wind while they en­joyed re­fresh­ments and food from lo­cal pro­duc­ers.

There were a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties tak­ing place dur­ing the day to en­ter­tain at­ten­dees.

Among them were a gi­ant cat­a­pult, face paint­ing, a raf­fle and demon­stra­tions from Buck­ing­hamshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice.

High Wy­combe-based ‘40s Swing trio The Polka Dots en­ter­tained visi­tors with a mix­ture of old favourites and new hits, while Queen Elsa kept the lit­tle visi­tors en­ter­tained with songs from the Dis­ney an­i­mated film Frozen.

Mem­bers of The Clare Foun­da­tion’s team were also hold­ing tours through­out the day for those who wanted to ex­plore the build­ing and find out more about its history.

CEO of The Clare Foun­da­tion Martin Gal­lagher hopes this event will be the first of many sum­mer events to be held at the Clare Char­ity Cen­tre.

He said: “We would like to thank ev­ery­one who helped out on the day and to those busi­nesses who at­tended and those who con­trib­uted raf­fle prizes.

“We’d also like to thank our visi­tors on the day who helped to make this event the great suc­cess it was. We are look­ing for­ward to next year’s event!”

The Clare Foun­da­tion is a reg­is­tered UK char­ity that helps other char­i­ties in­crease their so­cial im­pact through im­proved ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness.
