We are proud to run the Fun Day in aid of our fantastic charity partners. As well as having a great day out you can also feel great about the fact that all of the money you spend at the event will be supporting our 3 charity partners this year:
Gloucestershire Young Carers
Gloucestershire Young Carers supporting the ‘young’ in young carer. Providing a range of services for young carers and their families. GYC’s vision is that all young carers enjoy their childhood and experience a positive transition to adulthood, with a mission to support and enable young carers to build resilience and achieve their aspirations.
The Aston Project
The Aston Project is named after PC Lynn Aston, who sadly lost her battle with cancer in early 2011. The Aston Project hope to reduce anti-social behaviour within our community, whilst reducing NEET (not in education, employment or training) young people and increasing their self-confidence through partnership work.
Caring for Communities & People (CCP)
CCP's supported accommodation provides a range of integrated housing, training, education, employment, advice and support services for vulnerable young people aged 16-25 years.
The Falconry School
Most people have seen a bird-of-prey demonstration, but ours are somewhat different. Firstly, as the name implies, we use a team mostly comprising experienced falcons. These are the most exciting of all the raptor families and the most dashing of the falcons is the peregrine, which is rarely seen in public displays. This is officially the world's fastest living creature, which can attain speeds of well over 200 mph in a "stoop" or dive.
We have a number of falcons, including peregrines, and by the use of both ancient falconry methods and modern devices and techniques we endeavour to show the glorious flying abilities of the falcon.
Galloping Acrobatic Display Team
Galloping Acrobatics specialise in providing flamboyant vaulting based horse displays and we are delighted to have them joining our Fun Day this year! From the minute Galloping Acrobatics enter the arena you will be mesmerised by the remarkable feats of gymnastic, acrobatic and equestrian skill on display. Following each display a twenty-minute meet and greet session allows for you to ask questions and interact with all performers – human and equine!
Further attractions include helicopter rides (weather permitting), a funfair, giant water slide, American wrestling, donkey rides, local community groups and a full food court serving a wide selection of food to name just a few!
