Porthleven fun day raises air ambulance funds
10:00am Saturday 5th July 2014 in News
Organisers of a charity fun day in Porthleven are flying high after raising just under £2,000 for the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust.
Naomi Belert and Annette Shaw organised the all-day event as part of ongoing fundraising towards the main challenge: a trek to Machu Picchu in Peru at the end of the year, also for the air ambulance.
Saturday took the form of two parts – the first a family event at the Harbour Head, where there were stalls set up and a bouncy castle for children.
Then, that evening, the action moved indoors to the Atlantic Inn, where more activities took place including an auction.
There was a wide range of lots that bidders were eager to snap up – including VIP tickets to Alan Carr Chatty Man show.
Naomi and Annette said they were very grateful for the support they received, from those who helped organise and run the day, local businesses who donated prizes and everyone who came along on the day.
