A fabulous total for Salisbury Hospice Charity

The Fabulous Family Fun Day has raised in excess of £31,000 for Salisbury Hospice Charity on the event’s 10th Anniversary.

The 10th annual Fabulous Family Fun Day, kindly sponsored by Ozweld International, took place at Salisbury Rugby Club on Saturday, May 11th with a record attendance and fundraising total.

The Fun Day is organised in memory of Lyn Futcher, who was supported by the hospice in 2013.

The football tournament, sponsored by Jones & Co, proved as popular as ever, and the touch rugby tournament, sponsored by Adam’s Autos, was competitive from start to finish.

The live music stage, with a variety of performances from local bands and singers, added to the day. Children were entertained, and adults enjoyed a much-enjoyed beer tent.

More upbeat family entertainment was provided in the main performance arena, which was new for the 10th anniversary and sponsored by Complete Construction Ltd.

The raffle, which offered four people a chance to win a holiday in Turkey kindly donated by Beyaz Villas, was as popular as ever.

Chairman of the fundraising committee, Greig Futcher, had the following to say,
That’ll do! Brilliant – thank you so much, everybody.”

Tamsin Murley, Community Fundraiser for Salisbury Hospice Charity added, “I am once more humbled by how incredibly hard this dedicated committee of Greig, Sarah, Spencer, Sam, Clare and Jason work; they are truly remarkable.

“We are also so very grateful to Ozweld International, Salisbury Rugby Club and everyone who supported us in many different ways to put on this wonderful event.

“To raise £31,000 in one day is a remarkable achievement; every penny raised will go towards funding the vital services that the hospice provides, free of charge, to members of the community.”
