Posted by on Aug 18, 2017 in Latest News | Comments Off on Kingsnorth Teddy Bear Picnic

The Teddy Bear Picnic which was held at the Kingsnorth Community Cafe last Wednesday, proved to be a huge success. Plenty of parents, children and Teddys enjoyed their blanket picnic on the grass outside the Cafe.

Picnic boxes could be purchased on the day. Entertainment included a puppet show, story time, pass the parcel, make a teddy craft stall.

The Picnic was gratefully supported by Park Farm Tesco, who kindly donated fresh fruit and some of the raffle prizes.

£150.20 was raised on the day, and the proceeds will be divided between the Cafe and an “Over 75’s event” which will be held in September, dates to be arranged.

The Event, which was organised by 3 of the Cafe volunteers, Maureen, Fionna and Glynis, has received a very positive feedback, and already had requests to be repeated next year!

The organisers would like to express their gratitude to the parents and members of the local Community for their continued support.
