We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended and supported our Good Willow Gathering a few weeks ago with Team Verrico.
More than 200 people came to the weekend of camping, activities and fun at Willow Fields in Haxey at the end of July.
There was live music, games including miniature golf and giant Jenga, an alpaca farm and even a birds of prey show. Not to mention rock painting, tug of war, furniture pallet building, yoga, crafts and much more.
We feasted on crepes, waffles and pancakes, breakfast baps, burgers, soups, Caribbean barbecue and – of course – plenty of ice cream.
The campout is something we organised with Team Verrico, who do amazing work to support cancer patients and research across the country and had a counselling tent at the Good Willow Gathering.
We’d like to say a big thank you to Team V for working with us on this, and to everyone who came. We hope you had a great time!
We also want to say thank you to everyone who supported the event, including Elliott who donated all the portaloos for our campout, and to Ellgia Recycling who donated us a skip to make sure we could leave the site as clean as when we arrived.
We’re still totting up the figures but thanks to everyone involved we’ve raised at least £4,000 that will provide much-needed funds for future projects.
Thanks everyone – see you next year!
