Starr Water Wars raises in excess of £4000 – Sunday Sep 3rd
Last Sunday we held our ever popular Family Fun Day at Hove Lagoon and managed to raise an incredible £4000 with money continuing to come in.
Our multi sport event ‘Starr Water Wars’ saw 12 teams of local businesses battle it out at Hove Lagoon Watersports. The teams of 4 went head to head in fun activities such as paddle boarding, kayak water polo, raft building and sailing. Back on dry land there was plenty to keep the kids entertained from crazy golf, pirate island paddle boarding and trampolines to face painting and hair braiding.
Our very own local DJ Guy Lloyd of Juice FM Brighton was the host with the most and brought with him a fantastic party atmosphere and presented the coveted First Prize to Jury’s Inn Waterfront Hotel, with Sheridan Coopers and Team Webb in 2nd and 3rd places respectively.
Families and friends from all over Sussex came along to support the teams and delicious refreshments were provided by Lagoon Watersports with meat for the BBQ from Steyning Butchers.
Our Events Manager Rosie said “The day couldn’t have gone any better with so many teams getting involved and Guy Lloyd helping to create a fantastic party atmosphere. We are so grateful to all the businesses that took part and also to our event sponsors, Beales of Worthing, Airsprung and Drum Technologies Brighton for their support. In excess of £4000 was raised which will help local youngsters achieve their goals in Art, Sport and Education”.
