Chorley Carnival have named us, along with Blood Bikes NW, Cash for Kids and Legacy Rainbow House as the charities to benefit for Chorley Canrival 2014.
This has been an honour for us, and we were delighted to be named. To thank the Carnival for supporting us, and also to raise the profile of our group, we decided to have a float for the carnival.
Initally we were offered a vintage 1950s bus by a kind vintage vehicle owner, who also has wedding vehicles. Due to unforseen circumstances, the bus was not suitable, so Steve kindly drove us in his beautiful vintage Daimler Limousine, which was perfect for 7 of us. Unfortunately a few members could not join us.
The rain came down hard, but it did not stop the tenacious people of Chorley. The parade route was busy, and we had very sor wrists the next day from all of the waving!
Our patron also had a vehicle in the parade, and her family and friends also wore our sashes to show support for us.
We had a really fun time! We were dressed in 1950s clothes and we were kindly sponsored by Chorley Auto Volk and Creative Design, who paid for our banners.
Our Patron, Dani and her friends and family, all carried on collecting for us on the carnival field, by asking for donations for a photo with the Rhythmicaility minion.
As soon as we have the totals for the amounts raised by Dani and Rhythmicatlity, and Chorley Carnival, we will update this post.
