Family Fun Day Marazion

Family Fun Day Marazion

Come on down to Marazion on Saturday 22nd July from 10am for our annual Marazion Family Fun Day. The fun starts at 10am, and there will be a 6-a-side knockout cricket tournament, sandcastle competition, barbeques, and our famous water slide.  Fun for all ages! This even is one of our major fundraising occasions every year, and is well supported by the people of Marazion – everyone is welcome to go along, and take part. If you’re interested in entering a team in the cricket tournament, it costs only £12 per team, and you must register before 10am on the day.  Bookings can be made through the King’s Arms, in Marazion, if you’re keen. From 6pm, the action will transfer into the pub, where there will be an auction, including an England shirt signed by rugby star Jack Nowell, and First train tickets. This event has been organised by Amy Stains, a freind of Rosie’s, for several years, and she has worked hard to make it bigger and better every year.  Lets see if we can make the 2017 event the best yet!  Come along, bring your friends, bring your purses and wallets, and have some fun for a great...

Diddy’s LARF event raises £9000 sep 10 2014

In Christmas 2012 Andrew Stains (AKA Diddy) decided to grow his hair for LARF as it held a close relationship to his family. Diddy had the intention of having his hair shaved off the following christmas however Diddy’s friends had different ideas and decided to join him for an extra six nmonths to raise more money for the charity. Diddy, Andy, Ed & Byron then decided to make the “shave off” an event which Bens Cornish Kitchen were good enough to hold. The event included a three course sit down meal with an auction to follow. With the help of Diddy’s daughter Amy who was a close friend of Rosie’s and others the event was organised. Tickets were sold for the meal at £40 a head which included a glass of bubbly. All local trades in the area plus further donated auction prizes from punnets of strawberrues to sacks of potatoes to a weekend for two in fowey. The support the event had couldn’t have been more successful and Diddy can’t thank people enough. the amount of money raised is unbelievable considereding Diddys target was £1000. The grand total ended up being a wopping £9000. A big thankyou goes out to Ben”s Cornish Kitchen for holding the event. Fresh Barnet (Cheryl Robbens) for the shave off, all the suppliers for the sit down meal and finally all the auction donations. Andrew and Amy hope to continure to raise money and holding events for LARF so watch this...
