Sandy Bear Family Fun Day returns to Carew Castle

Posted On : 20/07/2022

Carew Castle will play host to the Sandy Bear Family Fun Day this Sunday for the second year running.

The aim of the Fun Day is to raise the profile of the children’s bereavement charity, along with some much-needed funds to support their vital work.

A fun-packed programme of activities will take place at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority-run attraction during the day, with something to suit all ages and interests. Entertainment will include music and dance workshops with Tickle Tunes, storytelling, a teddy bear hunt, emergency service vehicles, live music from Vision Arts Choir and Samba Doc, face painting, a vintage funfair and giant bubbles. Those attending will also have the opportunity to get their photo taken with Sandy Bear himself, and help raise money for this fantastic cause.

Manager of Carew Castle Daisy Hughes said: “‘Last year’s Sandy Bear Family Fun Day at Carew went incredibly well, with over 100 children and their families in attendance. We are so happy to support Sandy Bear, who are an inspirational charity, and we very much hope to work with them again in the future.”

Normal Castle admission fees apply, and Nest Tearoom will be open for a selection of light lunches and tasty treats between 10.30am and 4pm.

The Sandy Bear Family Fun Day will take place at Carew Castle on Sunday 24 July between 10am and 4pm, with further information available via Sandy Bear’s social media feeds on Facebook @sandybearbereavement, Twitter @SandyBearPembs and on LinkedIn.
