Bank Holiday fun at Carew Castle with Sandy Bear

Posted On : 20/08/2021

Carew Castle will form the backdrop for a Family Fun Day Event on Sunday 29 August 2021, which is being organised by local children’s bereavement charity, Sandy Bear. The Bank Holiday event, scheduled to run between 10am-4pm, aims to raise the profile of Sandy Bear, along with some much-needed funds to support their vital work.

An exciting programme of activities includes musical performances by Artistic Licence and Tickle Tunes, storytelling sessions, craft activities and a performance and workshop run by Samba DOC. At noon, a teddy bear’s picnic will take place, followed by a walk around Carew Castle’s hay meadow.

It’s also hoped that the county’s emergency services will be attending – with information about the important work they do and some activities for families to enjoy.

Further information will be made available via Sandy Bear’s social media feeds on Facebook @sandybearbereavement, Twitter @SandyBearPembs and on LinkedIn.

The event has received generous sponsorship from several local companies and organisations, including a marquee donated by Valero Energy. Further support will be provided by Dragon LNG and the Port of Milford Haven, who’ve both named Sandy Bear as Charity of the Year, and will be offering volunteering and sponsorship.

Daisy Hughes, Visitor Services Manager at Carew Castle, said:

“It’s an absolute pleasure to be part of this event, which promises fun for all the family, along with the chance to learn about the extraordinary support that Sandy Bear gives to bereaved children and young people.

“All are welcome at the Fun Day, but booking is essential. Anyone interested in attending should visit the Carew Castle events calendar to reserve a place.”
