Fantastic fun day attracts more than 200 people to Bucklebury Farm Park

Our World Autism Awareness Day 2017 fun day at Bucklebury Farm Park on Sunday was a great success.

More than 200 people attended the event, enjoying exclusive access for the day to the farm park and deer park’s range of attractions.

Children were able to meet and feed new-born lambs, calves and goat kids, enjoy the tractor-trailer rides through the deer park and try other activities.

The raffle for a new Samsung tablet computer was won by Alex Llewellyn, from Thatcham, with the runners-up cash prizes won by Colleen Bernard and Sandra Pressland. The tablet was donated by Ascot-based consulting firm Alectia.

The tombola raised more than £260.

We would like to thank the volunteers who helped on the day, including Tracey and Rosie Banahan, Colleen Bernard, Theresa Paine, Lisa Greetham, Mark and Caroline Young and Pat Almond.

Tesco (Oxford Road, Reading), Morrisons (Whitley), Sainsbury’s (Newbury) and the Valley Veterinary Group also made generous donations to support the event.

Our next family fun day for Autism Berkshire members will be at the Thames Valley Adventure Playground on Sunday, June 4. We will notify members when bookings open.
