2018 marked our 20th anniversary as Belvoir Southsea and Waterlooville and so we decided to mark the occasion with a (very impressive as it turned out) Summer Charity event raising money for a local children’s hospice.
For over 6 months the team planned and organised, so much had to be thought about that at times we considered calling a halt to the whole operation.
We spent months finding and organising stalls to attend the event - where they could sell their products and in return donate a percentage of their profits to the charity total.
A raffle was agreed upon to raise as much money as we could, therefore it was the responsibility of all team members to collect in as many raffle prizes as possible.
We got round any expense by asking for prizes as donations and in return we would advertise the businesses who had donated.
We were overwhelmed by the response. After sending out hundreds of letters all over the South Coast asking for any donation at all, we found ourselves inundated with free tickets to large, well known amusement parks, hampers, bikes, football shirts and the list goes on.
The biggest prize donated to us was a Hot Air Balloon ride for 2 which would leave from the field we were holding the event in. The basket and balloon were out in the afternoon for all to see. What a great experience for the lucky winner.
The event was to raise money by providing a great family day out, to accomplish this we organised a bouncy castle, ice cream stall, popcorn and candy floss, face painting, balloon modelling, fairground rides as well as the very popular (with Paul Cartwright) Segway course.
A local school donated the use of their school stage, which we set up at the bottom of the field to provide an areas for young performers. We had volunteers as young as 8 singing up onstage to all of the families who arrived. As well as singers we also had a show by the local children’s karate school, a performance by a local children dance school and a band which consisted of 13 year olds.
Not only did we have an amazing turn out to the event but the local police stopped by to talk to the children and show them the inside of a police car…complete with sirens going!!
2 local newspapers reported at the event taking numerous photographs of families enjoying and taking part in the day.
On top of all of the above, our very own Dave Whyte took part in a tandem sky dive to further add to our charity total.
In total we raised an amazing £3048.40 for Naomi House and Jacks place Hospice which provides care for children with life limiting illnesses.
Naomi House attended the event with their own stall and were taken aback by the success of the day.
This tremendous funding will enable the hospice to fully train a practise educator.
We could not have celebrated our 20th anniversary any better – a great day was had by all.
