When Lucy popped into the office  recently to tell us about her plans for a local Family Fun Day, we were bowled over by her enthusiasm and naturally agreed to take part.

Lucy explained that she had been inspired to organise the event following the passing of a close relative and had wanted to do something positive to celebrate his life and to raise funds to support local charities that were important to the family. 

Arranging events of any size is a challenge and there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes before the doors are even open. In a relatively short period of time Lucy managed to book a venue, design and distribute the posters, liaise with stall holders, organise the catering and even book DJ's to provide entertainment on the day.

It was a super event and we were pleased to join our friends and neighbours in celebrating the creativity of the local community and to support Lucy's hard graft!  Thanks to her and all the stall holders that supported the event, we received £103.68.

We made sure she got first dibs on the hot brew and biccies at the coffee morning this week - the least we could do!

 If you have been inspired by Lucy to arrange an event of your own, do get in touch and we will do what we can to support you.
