Teddy Bears Picnic in the Park – Highnam Court

To celebrate 25 years of helping disadvantaged families in Gloucestershire we held a Picnic in the Park at Highnam Court on Sunday 13th July 2014 featuring a Teddy Bears’ Picnic. There was a chance to explore the beautiful gardens, enjoy music, shop at stalls, and buy ice cream, food and drink (in case families didn’t have time to pack a picnic). There were plenty of activities including Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Stalls, Arts and Crafts, Games, and more . . . many of them were free. We had around 300 guests and raised just over £1400, which is fantastic. A big thank you to all who supported us.

We would like to say a big thank you to our volunteers who gave up their time to help marshall in the car park, paint faces, run stalls, and serve food and drink. We would also like to say thank you to our Patron Roger Head who let us hold our Picnic in the Park at his lovely home Highnam Court.
