Cranswick invites Milton Keynes community to action-packed family fun day in support of homeless charity

    Cranswick Milton Keynes is holding an activity-packed family fun day in Milton Keynes on Sunday 22nd August, with proceeds raised going to local charity Winter Night Shelter.

    Visitors can expect children’s fairground rides, delicious food and drinks, games, and lots more amusements on the day at Milton Keynes Village Pavilion, MK10 9AD from 10am – 4pm.

    Admission is free with a variety of amusements for school children and their families.

    All funds raised from the Family Fun Day will go to the Winter Night Shelter, which works to reduce homelessness within Milton Keynes and support those facing housing struggles.

    Cranswick has committed to raising a significant funds for Winter Night Shelter over the coming years.

    Cranswick is aiming to raise at least £25,000 for Winter Night Shelter by March 2022, and hopes that Family Fun Day will contribute significantly to this figure with the community’s support.

    Cranswick employees will also be hosting the tournament finals for its Summer of Sport programme, which saw teams taking part in darts, pool and football competitions throughout July and August.

    Sam Pearl, Cranswick Milton Keynes Site Director, is looking forward to welcoming visitors to Milton Keynes Village Pavilion: “After 18 months of lockdown restrictions it’s a real pleasure to see our teams getting together again - especially in support of such a life changing charity. We welcome the community to come along for a good time in aid of a great cause.”
