Toon Aid Boat Race for Great Exhibition of The North

Toon Aid Boat Race for Great Exhibition of The North


It’s going to be, we’re hoping, quite
quite a big event. There’s going to be live entertainment, there’s going to be great food,
there’s gonna be stalls; our local businesses are going to be coming in and
selling their wares. There’s going to be children’s activities, bouncy castles,
a giant inflatable slide, so loads of things are happening. Our main event of course
is the actual boat race; so we’ve got ten teams signed up. They’re going to be
using Bell Boats. Those teams of ten.. we’ve got ten teams, and they’re going to be
racing from 11 o’clock until most of the day, in a league and
tournament format. At midday there’s going to be a chance for people visiting
and enjoying the event to get out there as well on the Bell Boats to have fun, so it’s definitely a big family filled event. Q. OK. So, I’m just
going to pull the camera back so people can see the Toon Aid brand. People may be
familiar, they should have seen this around the place. Can you tell us a
little about Toon Aid, what it is and the work you do? Yeah, so Toon Aid
roughly started at the end of last year and it’s all about bringing together the
community, working with different charities individuals and causes locally.; those that are supporting the most vulnerable in our society, people facing
facing poverty, facing a crisis, so we don’t run our own activities but we
support those great charities and causes that are doing amazing work in the
community. So, we’ll support the fundraising and campaigning and this boat race
is one of those events that we’re running.
