Southport Charity Fun Festival 2011
WELL done to
the Fun Fest chairman James Grundy for putting on one of the best
ones yet, over Saturday, 4 June and Sunday, 5 June 2011, on Victoria
Park, Southport. This year the money raised will go to charities the
following:- Able Bodied Club, Claire House, Southport Alzheimerís
Society, Southport Lifeboat, Southport Physically Handicapped,
Queenscourt Hospice, Southport St John Ambulance and the Southport
Stroke Association. We headed over to see this free to attended
event on the Saturday to get a few snaps. The attractions at the
show included things like fairground rides, stalls, Lifeboat, Fire
Engine, Tug Of War Challenge, a junior football tournament, live
music, West Lancs. dog display and lots more. That was only on the
Saturday! Sunday, unfortunately we could not get a
photographer to cover had knights of the Historia Normannis
Southport, archery and the 'Itís A Knockout' on top of all that.
Oscar Pet Foods, who had a stall at the event said:- "We
had good crowds and people enjoyed themselves. The organisers this
year have done a fantastic job to keep this event going and they
require more help then ever to do this." James added:-
"Thereís a phenomenal amount of work that goes into putting an
the event like this on. Itís good to see a park full of people
enjoying themselves, but we need more help to keep this event alive
next year. Please contact me via the editor of the Southport
Visitor, our Vice Chairman Andrew Brown, if you would like to join
in our community run event."
