A new community group’s first family fun day is taking place to raise cash for charity.

Ashfield Activities Association has organised the event to donate money made to MacMillan Cancer Support.

It takes place on Saturday 27th September, at Teversal Cricket Ground and Visitor Centre.

Activities include craft making, glitter tattoos and nail art, real life Frozen princesses, face painting, bouncy castle, raffle, tombola, hot food and refreshments,

Naiomi Rebecca, who has helped organise the event said: “The aim of the day is not only to raise lots of money for Macmillan but also give a lasting effect to the community.

“At the close of the day, we want people to leave with more than just a belly full of cake and tea.

“We aim for people to take the benefit of services available including what is local and what we can do as a community to help.”

She hopes this will have a knock on effect in the future within the community.

The event is to coincide with MacMillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 26th September.

It’s the charity’s largest event to raise money for people living with cancer.

In 2013, 154,000 people signed up, raising a record £20 million.
