In the days and weeks building up to the big day on 29 July, the weather was just awful.
However, on the day the sun shone and the event was a massive success.
We had made the decision in advance to move most of the stalls indoors. We are so lucky to have lots of different areas and rooms within the Centre as well as a great outdoor space.
At the event on the day, there was such a brilliant atmosphere and we were so pleased and thankful that so many people from the community came along to support us.
A big thank you to Taylors Estate Agents, based in Bradley Stoke for sponsoring this event and putting up their fab boards promoting the Fete.
We would like to thank the work carried out by our Fundraising Team, it takes weeks of planning and hard work to get an event like this together. The day was such a success thanks to our AMAZING volunteers. All of our own stalls were manned by our volunteers, they were even marshaling the car park, as well as all the hours of preparation beforehand, helping on the day and clearing down at the end.
The community we have here at the Centre is undeniably amazing and getting everyone together for these events has the most uplifting feeling. Everyone appreciates all that our volunteers give to make therapy at The Brightwell possible.
As well as being an enjoyable day we also raised £1470!
