While the customary rain may have arrived in conjunction with Glastonbury Weekend, revelers will not be deterred from some fantastic community events that are planned throughout Cambridgeshire towns and villages, and nor will the continued backing from Mick George Ltd.
A busy weekend ahead for Mick George Ltd, providing in excess of £3,000 in financial and service based support to the various initiatives.
All of which kicks off on Friday, where a team of four employees will represent the business in a Charity Golf Day held at Toft Golf Course for a wonderful cause. Local boy Oliver, suffers with multi system Langerhans cell Histiocytosis and is currently part of an ongoing clinical drug trial at Great Ormand Street Hospital, for which the funds will help with the research.
That’s not it for the day either. The evening will see a further 10 employees attending the annual ‘Cambridge Charity Fundraiser Sports Dinner’, for which the company maintains its headline sponsorship status. Since the formation of the fundraising initiative back in 2007, the various events have managed to raise a commendable figure that surpasses £25,000 for numerous Cambridgeshire based charities. This time around, Quy Mill Hotel is the venue, with Tom’s Trust the selected charity of choice.
With a good night’s sleep in the bank, the fun really begins. The periodic Carnivals and Gala’s at Somersham and Ellington respectively, will see local residents engage in a host of traditional entertainment activities, that included Bake Offs, Car Shows, Boules and Gun Shoots’, to name just a few. All of which will be supplemented by live music, food stalls and float processions,
It’s not all for the older generations either. Down the road, Huntingdon Rowdies FC will be hosting a competitive football tournament for youngsters aged between 6 and 17, seeking to claim glory. It’s not all about the action on the pitch either, a BBQ and other informal activities are also scheduled.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’With everything that’s going on in the world at the moment, it’s pleasing to see local communities unite, and come together to really enjoy these annual events.’’
Stump continued: ‘’We like to offer a helping hand where we can, it’s a gesture of our appreciation for their ongoing support.’’
