Gin, Wine & Street Food fundraising total

Back in March, we held a Gin, Wine and Street Food event at West Street Vineyard. The aim was to have a great night and raise around £1500 for the Big Park Project. We are delighted to announce that after totting up the figures, we actually made a fantastic £2,700! Thank you so much to everyone who came along and bought raffle tickets, we appreciate the support so much.

It’s strange thinking the event happened just a couple of weeks before everything changed. While coronavirus was dominating the news, there were no social distancing measures in place and we were able to have over 130 people in one venue. Since then we have had to cancel an event at Jungle Adventure and also a fire station car wash day. Furthermore, the other events we had been planning this summer have all been postponed or cancelled.

While there is so much uncertainty over what is going on and when everything will go back to normal, we have started some initial plans for an event in September. This will be the Big Green Weekend and will actually be made up of two individual events: an eco fair and a growing and produce show.

We will be publishing more information on our website page for the weekend soon. In the meantime, we are still open to donations and volunteers for our group. So get in touch if you want to be part of the Project!
