Saturday 10th February saw Helping Hands Portsmouth hold it’s February Fete at Landport Community Centre in Portsmouth.
Helping Hands Portsmouth’s February Fete fundraising event took place on Saturday 10th February 2018. The day saw many stalls including a children’s toy stall along with a cake stand and a healthcare stall as well as a face-painter.
There were also tombolas and tuckshop stalls selling sweets, popcorn and canned drinks with all profits going to Helping Hands Portsmouth to enable them to continue thier work with the homeless and vulnerable within the city.
We also had Tesco’s Community Champion, Marnie, come along from the Craswell Street Store providing free fruit for all visitors to the day. Thank you to Marnie and Tesco for donating the fruit.
The day also saw entertainment from the amazing Becki Short, an entertainer specialising in singing songs from the 1940’s. Becki is also a singing tutor and brought along a couple of her students to perform on the day. They sang a wide range of numbers including the classic Dolly Parton’s 9 ’til 5 and songs from Broadway hit musical and film, Les Miserables, a favourite of our founder, Bev, as well as songs from Phantom of the Opera.
The day also had Spider-Man and Captain America in attendance!
The day raised an incredible amount of money and the whole team at Helping Hands Portsmouth would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended and also a huge thank you to those who attended holding stalls and volunteered for Helping Hands Portsmouth. Also, a massive thank you to the staff at Landport Community Centre for allowing us to hold the event there. Without your support, we couldn’t do the work we do, so again, THANK YOU!
