When South Holland people partied in the park with Bakkavor this year they were also supporting a worthwhile charity.

Bakkavor, a leading fresh prepared foods manufacturer with sites in Spalding, Sutton Bridge and Bourne, holds Party in the Park annually at Springfields Events Centre in Spalding.

The outdoor concert is part of the business’s Fun Weekend held over two days in July, this year celebrating the company’s 30th birthday. More than 5,000 employees and their families attended the event.

Party in the Park was open to the public, with top tribute acts performing, including One Direction Experience, Rule the World Take That Tribute Band and The 80s Experience. The night closed with an impressive firework display.

The successful event raised £15,000 for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

Ticket sales raised an impressive £7,500, which was then matched by the Bakkavor’s Board to make the grand total of £15,000.

During the Fun Weekend a Bakkavor’s Got Talent competition was held. Staff member Daniel Rutkowski earned top prize for his breakdancing display.
