SwanFest Day 3

The early rain on Sunday morning may have delayed things slightly, but closer to midday people started arriving. Their children particular enjoyed the entertainment we had laid on. Jess was a star with her various activities, and Rachel for her story telling.

Micky was back behind the stocks again. A donation was made that allowed all the bar staff to throw wet sponges at him. In fact all ages threw wet sponges at him - from 3 to 99. Yes, Renee did have a go! Even Micky's wife - Jess - got in there too! Micky raised nearly a hundred pounds for Windsor Homeless People with his efforts as well as some fantastic entertainment for all.

After today, the team will be resting with their feet up for quite a few days to recover. As well as the actual time the BBQ was fired up, they did all the shopping and food prep work. They have raised nearly £2,000 over the three days. Great work team!
