On the 8th of June, Victoria’s Promise hosted the Party in the Park at Hartlett’s Park in Hook. For those of you who were there, you will know what a truly wonderful day the attendees and volunteers enjoyed. The Rock Choir and Clique Duo kicked off the day before a very warm welcome from the Co-Founder of the charity, Alexander Eastman.
Children were busy either bouncing off each other in Zorb Balls, getting creative in the Pop Up Play Village or getting their faces painted by the wonderful Sarah Kennedy. The ever-funky So-Real carried the event into the evening with covers of Stevie Wonder and other funk/soul hits. The food and drink fuelled the boogie-focused attendees and as the evening drew closer spirits were certainly high. The day was only made better by the fantastic weather, even the short spell of rain created a beautiful double rainbow that served as a magical backdrop to the stages. The penultimate act, The Ganchos, brought an undeniable energy on stage paving the way for the final act, The Rollright Stones. They closed off with ‘Hey Jude’ but the audience were still not wanting the night to end and two encore songs were played.
Overall, the day was a huge success in regards to both the fundraising and the joyous event itself. Victoria’s Promise are so thankful to the bands, the volunteers and all those involved in making the Party in the Park such a success. As well, we would like to extend our gratitude to all of you that came to the event, as well as the local community, you made the first Victoria’s Promise Party in the Park a memorable experience for all.Fundraising events like The Party in the Park are essential to Victoria’s Promise continuing it’s journey in helping young women and their families.
