Family Fun supporting your local hospice this Easter

Beaumond House are excited to announce their first ever Easter Family Fun Day and Chicken Run – a 2.5km family fun run, both taking place on Friday 7th April in Newark Market Place.

The Easter Fun Day will take place between 10am and 3pm and promises a variety of entertainment for the whole family, including inflatables, Easter crafts, egg and spoon races, a climbing wall, board games, a disco and a fancy-dress competition… as well as the opportunity to win prizes.

Wristbands for the fun day are priced at £8 per child (age 16 and under) when booked online in advance via the Beaumond House website. Wristbands will be £10 if purchased on the day. The hospice advise booking in advance to guarantee entry.

The Chicken Run is a 2.5km fun run around Newark Town Centre, starting at 10.30am in Newark Market Place. The run (which is not a race and you are welcome to walk if you prefer) costs £10 per adult, £5 per child and £25 per family (2 adults & 2 children) when booked online in advance. Prices increase by 20% for on the day entries. Fancy dress is optional but encouraged!

Easter Family Fun Day wristbands will be discounted by 50% for children who are taking part in the Chicken Run.

Attending Beaumond House events helps the hospice to continue to provide compassionate, skilled, professional nursing care of the highest quality to the local community. 100% of your donation supports your local hospice.

Matt Colbourne, Community & Events Fundraiser at Beaumond House says “Each year, Beaumond House must raise over one million pounds to continue offering the free and vital services available to residents across Newark & Sherwood. Our in-house events are just one of the many ways that we fundraise, and we try to make these events as fun, attractive and accessible to all as possible. If you’re looking for something to do with the family on Good Friday and you fancy helping to raise funds for a good cause at the same time, then we’d love to see you in the Market Place from 10am.”

The event is being sponsored by Pratt & Gelsthorpe, Newark. Managing Director, Richard Gelsthorpe, says “We have a long-standing history of supporting the outstanding work that Beaumond House do and we’re proud to sponsor this event. As a local independent business, we’re keen to see events take place which bring both residents and visitors right into the heart of the town.”

Wristbands and Chicken Run entries can be purchased here. Activities may be subject to change; keep up to date with the events on the hospice’s social media channels @beaumondhouse.
