On 1st August 2015, we held our second launch day with Sainsbury’s to celebrate our partnership with them. This was held at The Brewery, Romford and we definetely topped last year’s event!
We welcomed our other sponsors, UK Garrison, who brought along their Star Wars mascots including storm troopers and Darth Vader which was well received by the public!
Throughout the day, we entertained Sainsbury’s customers as well as the surrounding public by walking the streets with our charity buckets and guding the Star Wars characters around. This made for great photo oportunities for everyone and got the public talking about our charity and why we were hosting the launch.
We also had entertainment from the lovely Lucy, who came as Queen Elsa and sang for us and the children.
Sainsbury’s staff held a tombola on the day as well and we would like to thank them for helping with this.
The day itself raised a grand total of £1383.85 which beat last years total and we couldn’t have done it without our supporters and members of the public who joined in with the fun and donated generously.
Big thank you also to UK Garrisons, and all our volunteers for making this a fantatstic launch event!
