Family fun day

MRSA Action UK attends a Community Fun Day at Grange Park, Blackpool
Sunday 20 July 2014

A Community Fun Day was held in memory of Maureen Horn on the anniversary of her passing on Sunday 20 July. Maureen was a community leader who always had time for anyone in need, and gave up her time for children on Grange Park, Blackpool.

The day was a celebration of her work and the continuing success of work with families at the Cherwell Centre, where events are held for all generations throughout the year. The Blackpool Circus School held a fun demonstration and families joined in. There were guest singers, a piper, a Zumba display, face painting, a bouncy castle, and barbeque. Cllr Gillian Campbell and her family joined in with the fun.

Blackpool's Deputy Mayor, The Worshipful the Mayor of Blackpool, Councillor Val Haynes and the Consort Mr Alan Haynes opened the event, where donations were collected for Donna's Dream House to the value of £236.80.

MRSA Action UK often give support with hand hygiene events with the children at the Cherwell Centre, and Staphon the superbug put in an appearance, with several volunteers offering to take on the role during the event. Staphon always draws a lot of attention at events and our thanks go to Molnlycke Healthcare for supporting the event with the loan of Staphon.
