On Saturday 20th July, Palletways Cardiff held its first ever Family Fun Day. Although the weather attempted to spoil the occasion, the team made a decision to move the event inside the warehouse, and a great time was had by all!
Given that this was the first time Palletways Cardiff had hosted such an event, they managed to organise live music, a bouncy castle, tractor unit rides, BBQ, games for the children and the warehouse manager even brought his trike down and gave free rides to the families.
With thanks to the hard work from the OPS staff, donations from, Cardiff Frames and Gwynt y Draig Cider, (to help cool down some of the parents) the site managed to raise £320!
The idea for the Fun Day came from the management team at Palletways Cardiff as a way to thank drivers and staff for all their hard work. The business paid for the event to help engage families with the business, and offer an understanding into the world of transport. All of the proceeds raised went to Tŷ Hafan. Palletways Cardiff has adopted the hospice as its charity, and will look to hold similar events in the future, and offer logistical support where ever possible.
Palletways Cardiff also went along to the Tŷ Hafan Family Fun Day last Sunday to provide a lorry that transformed into a main stage for performers and also a chance for children to sit inside in the driver's seat for a photo!
Until then; lots of volunteers have come forward to offer their services for next year, to include face painting, stalls for the children and much more.
A huge thank you to everyone and look out for another next year!!
