This weekend staff and volunteers from Children on the Edge took part in Chichester’s Get Active Festival, a free family sports and activities day presented by Chichester District Council. We ran a popular face painting stall and raffled off two pairs of Goodwood Revival tickets, generously donated by Revival’s founder Lord March.
As we painted our way through many butterflies, tigers and spidermen Spirit FM described our work over the tannoy to the hundreds of people in Oaklands Park enjoying the day.
“We were delighted to be part of the Get Active Festival. It’s a fantastic opportunity to rub shoulders with others in the local community and let people know what we do” said Euan Clarke, Community Fundraiser at Children on the Edge.
Get Active was part of Chichester’s Big Weekend which also included a local food fare and a beautiful illumination of the city’s park and walls.
Please feel free to find out more about our work and how you can get involved.
