More than 600 children from children’s centres across Mansfield have enjoyed a free fun day out at the seaside.
Miss Mansfield waved off the party yesterday as they rolled out of the town centre under a VIP police escort.
Thanks to taxi firm, 6five 2’s, on Garden Road in Mansfield, children and their families enjoyed fish and chips, donkey rides, ice cream, rock and goody bags at Skegness for free.
It is the firm’s fifth annual fun run where drivers work for free and put the fuel in their cars in order to give families a great day out who might otherwise not be able to afford it.
Barry Answer, organiser and taxi driver, said: “We try to take as many people as we can each year.
“I know that this year some of the children we took had never been to the seaside before.
“Families don’t need to spend a penny if they don’t want to as almost everything they could want we have paid for.”
