“This is the first time we have held an event like this and we would love to see lots of local families down here enjoying the day and helping us raise money for Acorns,” she said.

“Acorns does fantastic work helping children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and they rely on community fundraising, so we want to do everything we can to help make sure they can continue to support families across the region.”
