Bakkavor has supported two local charities from the proceeds of Party in Park.

The major food company holds a Party in the Park community music event in the summer each year.

It is part of a fun weekend arranged for both members of staff as well as the public.

A spokesman said this year’s was another successful event, with more than 1,200 people listening to live bands in the grounds of Springfields Events Centre in Spalding.

Among those on stage this year were Abba Gold and Radius 45 as well as soloist Dennis Hannant and compere Ali Jay.

The spokesman said: “Bakkavor, Spalding’s major employer, is once again proud to support local charities, presenting cheques worth £4,000 to South Holland PHAB (£2,000) and Spalding Guide Dogs for the Blind (£2,000).

PHAB’s aim is to promote opportunities for disabled and non-disabled people to share experiences on a genuinely equal basis and so contribute towards a fully inclusive society.

Guide Dogs for the Blind provides mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people, campaigns for the rights of people with visual impairment, educates the public about eye care and funds eye disease research.

Terry Moore, presenting the cheques on behalf of Bakkavor, commented: “Following our successful Party in the Park earlier this year we’re delighted to donate the monies raised from this event to these local charities which play such an important role in our community.”
