Another Fantastic Family Fun Day

Thank you to the hundreds of people who attended a Family Fun Day on Saturday to raise money for two hospital charities.

£6,071.52 was raised and will be split 50/50 between The Medway Hospital Charity and The Evelina London’s Children’s Charity.

The event was organised by Ann McKinnon, a Play Specialist at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, to raise money for the children’s ward she works at and for the Evelina, who have looked after her daughter for 18 years.

Held at Gillingham Football Club, it was supported by guest of honour Mister Maker, who opened the event and met hundreds of young fans, staff at Gillingham FC and Medway Maritime Hospital, Hospital Radio Medway, St John Ambulance and dozens of volunteers.

Ann McKinnon, said: “Thank you to my amazing support network who helped me organise and run this event, to Phil Gallagher (Mister Maker) and to Gillingham Football Club for allowing us to use its venue. All their staff and my army of volunteers were amazing, working tirelessly to make this event such a success and I couldn’t have done this without you.”

Donna Law, Charity and Fundraising Manager for The Medway Hospital Charity, said: “Thank you to everyone who came along to support the Family Fun Day. Both hospital charities will receive an incredible £3,000 to make a difference to their patients. Thanks to Ann’s dedication to her department, we will be using this money to support a new sensory room on Dolphin Ward.”
