We raised a total of £2,600 for Children in Need on Friday 31st October 2014. A great night was had by all and the night even featured our very own minions!
On Friday 31st October we had our annual Pumpkin Extravaganza. This event has built up over the years and features a children’s play, fancy dress competition, colouring competition and a spectacular fireworks display. The play this year followed an X Factor theme after the very popular ITV show and it saw 5 acts trying to win over the judges that had been picked from the audience of children. Act 1 was the Ghostbuster dancers, act 2 was a Thriller dance, act 3 was the scary skeletons dancing to the skeleton song, act 4 was the 5 witches from the farm shop and act 5 was the minions! We even made our own costumes this year and are hoping that they will come in handy again soon! Act 2 was voted the favourite by our 4 judges and was our very own Mark Sismore dancing to Thriller as Stay Puft Marshmallow man from Ghostbusters! The evening then moved onto children’s games, and announcement of the colouring competition winners and the judging of the fancy dress competition. We had a hog roast, burgers, hot dogs and also our very own homemade pumpkin soup on offer which was enjoyed by many. At 7.30pm the AMAZING fireworks finished the evening and really were spectacular! We would like to thank everyone that came and supported the event and a massive thank you to all our staff that stayed on to help. A great night had by all and we hope that we will see everyone again next year.
