Science Park Jubilee party raises £350 for local charity
On behalf of everyone here at the Science Park, we’d like to say a big thank you to all those that attended the Jubilee garden party and helped make it such a success. As well as kicking off Bristol’s jubilee celebrations, the event raised £350 for Brandon Trust, the Bristol-based charity enabling people with learning difficulties to live the lives they choose.
Despite the poor weather over 100 people enjoyed the many garden party games and activities on offer. The Forum was put to good use thanks to the weather with many activities being brought inside including a visit from our regular, friendly falcon, employed to ward off pigeons and seagulls.
Children and families from several local primary schools joined in the fun and pupils from Emersons Green Primary School designed their own Jubilee bunting which was on display in the Forum.
Bonnie Dean, chief executive of the Science Park said:
“We were delighted to see so many people at the Jubilee garden party despite the bad weather. The Forum has held dozens of successful business events since we opened last autumn, but it was great to see people from the local community enjoying the facilities and grounds, which are always open to the public. Thank you to all those who came along and everyone involved in making it happen.”
