We are pleased to announce the count from the Southend Carnival has finished and we collected a staggering £1,452.59!!! This is the most we have ever raised at Carnival, so a massive massive thank you to everyone who donated to us during the evening!

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mikes Boatyard LTD for the use of the trailer and build facility, thanks to Adcock Agri Ltd for the use of the tractor and to Southend Timber for donating the wood. Of course, all this wouldn’t have been possible unless some of the crew and a team of willing volunteers didn’t put several weekends worth of work into making it such a successful float! You done the team very proud! 💪

Thank you again and see you at Leigh Lights 2019!
