A day of family fun
9:40am Thursday 6th September 2012 in News
A SPECIAL event hosted by Malvern mayor Coun Ian Hopwood has raised more than £1,000 for Acorns Children’s Hospice.
The Mayor’s Bonanza, billed as an afternoon of family fun and entertainment, was a great success, said Coun Hopwood.
It featured music from the Perdido Street Jazz Band and Tewkesbury Town Band among others, children’s entertainment ranging from Victorian-style fairground rides to drumming workshop, stalls and games.
Coun Hopwood said: “Considering we were competing against the Olympics, we had a very good turnout.
“We want to thank everyone who attended and all the helpers for raising money for such a good cause.”
