Crowds roll up for special day
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!”
