Thank You’s

A heartfelt thank you to all the incredibly generous individuals and organisations without whom the picnic simply couldn’t go ahead. They’ve donated their time, supported us with their services or made a donation in the run up to this year’s picnic and deserve to be publicly thanked. They include:

Brighton and Hove Council who awarded us a grant of £750, without which the picnic possibly wouldn’t happen.

Morgan Carn who have printed some rather fine posters
Hummingbird Studio who have loaned us some easels

Nick, Cliff and Symond who are providing their technical expertise for our sound, stage and lighting. Also Simon Bottrell at 7Creative for designing the poster and Duncan Blinkhorn from Friends of William Clarke Park for lending us equipment and being generally supportive. Plus all our lovely volunteers who stepped forward on the day to run the children’s games.

Others to thank include Beaumonts Estate Agents, Savery Books, Fiveways Fruits, WigWam Toys, The Cleveland, David & Co, Barfields, Living at Fiveways, The Eleventh Flower, Quaff, Soul Sister, Hove Art Room, Lark on Lowther all of whom have donated raffle prizes.
