So the sun shone, the bride looked beautiful and DJ Barry’s party music played out to the community of Keynsham. Our Royal Wedding fete on the 19th May at the Scout HQ in Keynsham had largely been organised by Student volunteer Molly Hale and her tribe of volunteers, and it was a great success. So huge thanks to everyone who helped out on the day you really are the reason these events are so successful.
We raised around £500 on the day with a Raffle, Tombola, Cakes, BBQ, refreshments and lots of fun stalls including face painting and a bouncy castle.
There were a few new faces among the attendees at our event as we welcomed old and new members we hope to see you all again at our next event.
We had visits from the police and the fire service and they were able to show our attendees the vehicles and sound the sirens.
It was great to host a popular event that coincided with a national event. We were also able to air the wedding live from a separate room in the Scout HQ in Keynsham, to ensure everyone good be part of the great event!
Scones, Jam and cream for English cream teas were very kindly donated by Arthur David food wholesalers in Bishop Sutton, Paula from Tesco Brislington donated a gift card and teddies for the tombola’ The Meat Machine kindly offered us our BBQ food at a reduced rate. Thanks to kind donations like these we are able to raise more money for our fundraising.
