Snettisham Caravan Park reaches £100k charity milestone
Customers of Snettisham Caravan Park have raised more than £100,000 for charity in the last 19 years.
This year they capped that total with another annual donation of £5,500 to SERV Norfolk - Service by Emergency Response Volunteers - best known as Norfolk Blood Bikes.
Park owners, John and Marylin Roser, work tirelessly each year to encourage their customers to help support local worthy causes and their appeal always produces a wave of support.
“We appreciate our customers’ loyalty and dedication down the years. They are all volunteers and we thank them very much,” said Mrs Roser.
This year the money was made through a series of fundraising events including an auction, a dog show, bingos, quiz sessions, fishing matches, table-top sales and a barbecue and music afternoon.
“We need £3,800 a month a keep us going,” said SERV volunteer, David Parish.
“We move blood products, samples, donated breast milk and anything else the NHS asks us to do.”
Members use the charity’s fleet of motor bikes and cars to ferry packages, sometimes from one side of the county to the other.
“We also occasionally use our own vehicles when the emergency demands it,” added Mr Parish.
Park customers will soon decide which charity to support next year.
“Everyone gets the chance to vote,” said Mrs Roser.
