Plans are in place for the 2013 Fun Day. In the meantime here is an overview of 2012.

CHARITY FAMILY FUN DAY

Sunday 3rd June: Charity Family Fun Day

A special Charity Family Fun Day is being organised for Sunday June 3rd to coincide with the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebration weekend in the UK.

The event will be held at Lauro Golf Academy, on the road from Alhaurin el Grande to Alhaurin de la Torre.

Organisers are now looking for charity groups to take stalls to raise money for their own organisations and a limited number of suitable businesses will also be offered the opportunity to promote their products. There is no fee for charities although businesses will be charged €20 per pitch. Company sponsorship is also encouraged.

The fun day will incorporate a traditional Family Sports Day, live entertainment, demonstrations, shows, stalls, tombola, beat the goalie, Bouncy Castle, games, candy floss, popcorn, wine tasting and much more.

The highlight of the day will be a Family Sports Day organised by Kidz Inland, a voluntary group which runs regular events in the Coin and Alhaurin area. The Family Sports Day will take every child back to the old school sports day events such as egg and spoon, beanbag race, sack race and a mums v dads tug-o-war event.

Live music will be provided by the hugely popular Costa Rock who will give a performance of their 80s music through to rock numbers whilst there will be a series of demonstrations and shows by local theatrical, dance and sports groups.

Food will be a mixture of traditional British fare through to curries and paellas whilst local stalls will also features cakes, biscuits and treats.

The event is also being run in conjunction with the 4th annual Big Lunch which falls on the same weekend as the Diamond Jubilee. The Big Jubilee Lunch will also be held at the Charity Family Fun Day with caterers providing a range of traditional food from the Big Lunch Recipe book.

Back in 1977 some 10 million people partied in the streets to celebrate the Silver Jubilee. Event and organiser Lisa Sadleir, of Family Life in Spain, is hoping the British community will get into the spirit of this event and encourages other nationalities to come along and taste a little of British culture.

Lisa said: “This event is aimed at having fun! We are hoping that it will demonstrate the good old community spirit is alive and well on the Costa del Sol. The more charities that can benefit from the event the better. I look forward to hearing from you”.
