Charity Fun Day & Car Boot Sale – 2013

June 24, 2013 | Nathan Reid

Active8 Sheffield will be hosting their sixth annual charity fun day on Sunday 14th July 2013 with the normal car boot sale taking place the week before on Sunday 7th July 2013 due to the size of the main event. The Weston Park Hospital and Barnsley Hospice cancer charities will again benefit from the success of both days. The fun day takes place 10:00 am – 3:00 pm and is at both King Edwards and Tapton Community Sports Centre with the car boot taking place at Tapton from 8:00 am onwards.

It will be a fun event for all and will raise further awareness of the work that is done by these wonderful charities. The event has been a massive success over the years and has been supported from the outset by many local businesses who dedicate there time to make this event the success that it is.

Activities taking place throughout the day will include 4 small-sided children’s football tournament on the 3G astro turfs and grass pitches. The event will again be supported by many organizations that have worked with us since the day begun in 2007 and these include Fun 2 Bounce, Big Als Funhouse Entertainment, Party Animals, Bishops Coffee House and Bistro, Active Stars, Chris’s Ices plus several other Sheffield based organisations.

Features include fairground rides, inflatable slides, a parrot show, an animal farm, bouncy castle’s, a penalty shoot-out with Caribbean Food catering for your taste buds.

This is an event that you don’t want to miss, we raised £1092.00 last year and in total since the start of the event we have donated over £8000 to the charities since the event began in 2007, we have spread the event over two days this year to ensure greater success for everyone involved.

All money raised from the events whether this is through pitch fees for the car boots or entry fees to the tournaments are donated directly to the charities, with the additional on-site activities donating a fee from there takings for the day.

Please come and show your support entry to the event is free, and the experience from the day will make a difference to someone’s future. Whether this is through donations or you have a conversation with one of the on-site Weston Park or Barnsley Hospice representatives this could help to change the lives of the people we all love.

We look forward to seeing you on the day.
