Fun day for children’s ward

Posted on in Fundraising

A Teesside pub is organising a bumper family fun day to raise funds for the children’s ward at The James Cook University Hospital.

The Coulby Farm Pub has pulled out all the stops to ensure there is something for everyone with DJ Lisa hosting the garden party and games on Bank Holiday Monday (27 May) from 12noon.

Families are invited to enjoy Cleveland Army Cadet Force’s climbing wall, the Little Ladies Pamper Parlour (nail painting, glitter tattoos and hair braiding), face painting, balloon modelling, bouncy castle, mini fun fair stalls, cake stalls, a big cake raffle and a soft play session with pub mascot Fuzzy Ed.

It is hoped the funds raised will be used to refurbish the parent’s room on ward 22 at James Cook. The revamp would include providing a fridge, microwave and hot water boiler for parents to use while their children are on the ward.

Jenny Whittaker, assistant manager at The Coulby Farm Pub said: “We decided to support the children’s ward at James Cook as the pub ethos is all about family.

“We are hoping to raise as much as possible throughout the day so why not come along and join in the fun?”
