Snettisham Caravan Park helps out charity

A cheque for almost £6,000 was presented to local officials of Guide Dogs for the Blind when they visited Snettisham Caravan Park on Sunday.

This was money raised during the 2015 season, said the caravan park owners, John and Marilyn Roser, through a wide range of activities including a charity auction, bank holiday afternoon of music and barbecue, a dog show, table top sales, bingo sessions, afternoon tea and fishing matches.

Many local companies, including McDonnell Caravans, Orchard Caravans, Pioneer Caravans, Baco Compak, A & M Gas Services and Bailey Electrical also donate annually towards the fundraising.

The cash will be put to good use in training guide dog puppy Jen, who is just five months old, and is pictured in the front (centre, left) with her puppy walker Sylvie Hall and joined by Mandy Loveder, the community fundraising development officer, and Lynn branch chairman Gill Southgate with her guide dog Yazmin.

Gill said the group were grateful for the support Snettisham Caravan Park have given to the Guide Dogs Association.

The park has raised close to £90,000 for local charities over the past years and fundraising during the 2016 season has been for West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled Magpie Centre.
