Friends of Treginnis Summer Fête

October 3, 2016

viewWe had a fantastic time at our Friends of Treginnis Summer Fête this year, with a full day of entertainment! There were choirs, brass bands, swooping falcons and waddling ducks, along with plenty of cake!

This year’s fête was particularly special as it was the 25th anniversary of the Friends of Treginnis, and our 40th anniversary of Farms for City Children. More than 1,000 people came along to the event, enjoying various activities, including a falconry display and a rounding up of the ducks.

An incredible £8,500 was raised from the day – thank you to those who came, organised, volunteered and helped make the day such a success. Your support will go a long way in supporting schools to come to Lower Treginnis and, whilst the children visit us for a week, the benefits of that week will last a lifetime.running-ducks
