Lions Club of Guernsey have organised a ‘Guernsey Together Celebration' in place of the cancelled Donkey Derby next month.
The coronavirus pandemic has meant that the racing donkeys, normally brought over from England, would be unable to attend the annual event.
However, Lions Club have organised a different event for the same day, in conjunction with the Leo Club of Guernsey and members of the North Show committee.
Members of the Association of Guernsey Charities are being invited to attend to raise money for their individual causes. Craft stallholders have also been invited to attend.
A small catering village is planned, including hot and cold food, a beer tent, hog roast, and gin bar.
A number of local bands will be performing throughout the day, including Element Six and Buffalo Huddleston until 22:00 and City Limits to close the event. Additional bands will be announced shortly, and other entertainment such as dance acts, acrobats and Zumba classes have also been planned.
Funds raised throughout the day will go towards the welfare efforts of the Lions Club, which includes support from local families and referrals from Health & Social care who are in dire need of support.
Entrance will be free to the event, with a nominal charge for use of the car park.
Those who wish to support the event through a sponsorship or small donation can do so by contacting email@example.com
