Pilgrims Hospice Ashford summer fair

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for a lovely day out at this year’s Pilgrims Hospice Ashford summer fair to raise vital funds for Pilgrims Hospices.

Below, find information about Pilgrims Hospice Ashford summer fair 2017 to give you an idea of what future events might look like.

Our dedicated supporters flocked from Ashford and across east Kent to enjoy a fun, family day out. At the same time, they raised vital funds to help Pilgrims provide hospice care across east Kent.

A wide range of stalls offered local produce, garden plants, luxury crafts, tasty homemade cakes and hot food. Entertainment included live music, tombolas, raffles and games for adults and children alike, with the chance to win some fantastic prizes.

In 2017, our Ashford summer fair attracted more than 2,000 people of all ages and raised more than £20,000 for Pilgrims, an outstanding result that highlights how much community spirit in east Kent can achieve.

We can only run our community events with the help of dedicated Pilgrims volunteers. Whatever your skillset, we’d love to hear from you. If you’d like to volunteer at a future event, #contact your local fundraising office# (about-pilgrims-hospices / contact-us).

Together, we make a difference

Pilgrims provide specialist care and services completely free of charge to people across east Kent; to keep that up, we need to raise more than £11 million each year. By coming along to one of our community events, you can help us raise these vital funds. #See how money you raise can help# (supporting-pilgrims-hospices / fundraising-pack / how-your-contribution-will-help).
