Unlike England's 2010 World Cup debut against America, PSDS managed to score a hat-trick at our Summer Fun Day the day after! For the third year running we basked in glorious sunshine at Nutfield Cricket Club. But we didn't just enjoy success with the weather, the Fun Day all round was a huge success with more guests than ever before enjoying our largest to-date number of stalls and activities - and we raised more money than the previous two year's too with a grand total profit of £3184.87, every penny of which will be used to help children with Down syndrome to reach their full, wonderful potential! From Beat The Goalie to pony rides, mini makeovers to welly wanging - there was lots for everyone to enjoy and some fabulous prizes made their way home with many lucky winners too.
The cake stall and Sausage Sizzle were both incredibly popular and we are very grateful to Shabden Park Farm, Chipstead, for supplying the wonderful sausages for our sizzle! Huge thanks also go to Reigate and Redhill Round Table for their sponsorship of the Fun Day and to Redhill Redstone Rotary for their kind donation too. We are also very pleased to thank all our fantastic volunteers who helped with setting up, clearing up and of course manning the stalls and activities throughout the afternoon - including helpers from Redhill Rotary and St Bede's School, Redhill. And of course all the individuals and companies who donated products to help ensure that we made as much profit as possible. (please click here for a list of thanks)
But the day would not have been the success that it was without the warm welcome and continued support of our hosts - Nutfield Cricket Club. Their glorious grounds make the perfect setting for the Fun Day and their help makes all the difference.
So to all of you who came along, we hope you had a wonderful time and thank you for your support. And to anyone who missed the event, we'll do our best to make it even better next year!!
